This post is long overdue. Back in February 2015 I approached Jason @ Notable Guitars about ordering a Custom OM60. I specifically wanted an Adi top, ivoroid binding, and Marquetry strip.

At the time Larrivee didn't have any Adi tops, so I ordered a really nice selected piece from the folks at Old Standard Wood. They supply all the Adi for Collings and many other builders. Matt and Jean agreed to let me provide the Top and the other custom specs.

When my "Dream" Larrivee OM60 finally arrived I was amazed! The craftsmanship and playability are superb . That and the exceptional Tone this guitar has is really something unique. Jean, Matt and crew really did a fine job and I'm so glad I chose to go with them.

As much as I like Spruce, especially Moonwood European Spruce, my favorite top is a torrefied Adirondack Red Spruce I purchased from another luthier on a custom guitar he built for me.  A few months back, Dave's Woodstock actually had a one-off D model with a top like this, the video was a jaw dropper.  To say the least, this guitar sold in a couple of days.  Thermally Aged Adirondack Red Spruce is so impressive that I wish Larrivee would make it a custom option...

Congratulations!

VERY, VERY   nice guitar

I think it is great that the folks at Larrivee will allow end users to provide woods for their Custom Shop build on a case by case basis.
