Yep, I agree. Really, really nice. I'd like to play it one of these days, if Duck doesn't shoot me when I get near his lawn, his lake, his sky......

Any time mate. I don't even have a gun on this side of the border. Whole lot of rigamarole to go through to possess a gun, any gun, in Canada. If a fox or something bigger grabs one of our dogs. all I have is a sharp stick. And I'd likely be in trouble if I used it.

I have an older c-09 custom BZ.
 it's cannon, compared to all my other guitars.
I'm one of those people who pretends he can tell the difference.
I DO know the attack immediacy, and protection of BZ over EI is more than noticeable.

sound people and audience types always comment that particular guitar when it's on the gig, more so than any of the others.
 It was made for some-one, who asked for no logo, single 12th fret inlay and the celtic thing on the bridge wings.
 Maple binding, and the most perfect quarter sawn mahogany neck I've ever seen on any guitar.

"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
 Too few brain cells to be bothered with...

If it was legal in Europe, I really would like to play a brazilian Larrivée. You all are lucky guys.

I have a 2008, 000-60  Brazilian I got last year; supposedly a Larrivee rep.s guitar.
My love however is a 000-60 Madagascar with a gorgeous back and bear claw top complete with
amazing sound that I got from our own Bob Warman, last year also!

I did have a D10 EIR before I bought the Brazilian and kept both for a while.  So I had ample time to compare the 2 and in my mind, the Brazilian makes a big difference.  There is just more sustain and overtones that come out of the Brazilian.  Some refer to it as a glassy, reverb tone and I agree.

I have now had a chance to do a comparison, with 12-54 Martin monel retros on the L-10 BZ (1995) and an L-09 EIR (2006), and yes there is a difference and it is easily noticed.
On the E, A, and D strings there is a lower and deeper bass frequency response on the L-09, which is not on the L-10. It is not a problem except for finger picking quick alternate bass patterns, then those patterns lose some clarity. The L-10 has much less of those lower bass frequencies, all the notes ring out clear. The L-10 also seems to have a faster attack in the bass range that seems not so evident on the L-09. I have never completely understood the term "bloom", perhaps that is what I am hearing on the L-09. The sustain of both guitars seems similar, but with the L-10, is more enjoyable to hear.
There doesn't seem to be a difference I can hear with the G, B, and E strings.
The term "glassy" does apply to the L-10, as well as "piano-like".

I also played the LV-10 (2010) with it's newer 12-53 Elixer nano 80-20, and the same comments apply as with the L-09. One can sense with the same strings the LV-10 and L-09 would sound in the same "zone". I have no idea the effect of the spruce tops on the 3 guitars. They do look different.
Not sure about "projection", and I kinda think all 3 guitars are similar, volume-wise.

The lack of lower end boom and quick attack are also what I like about the L-05 and C-05s, except they decay much faster.
The L-10 needs a new saddle, the current one is pretty well "grooved" at all 6 strings. I did notice the bridge pin at the high E string is unslotted, but the guitar is 22 years old.

I hope this makes sense.
