        My OOO-40R came today. I'm very pleased with it. Looks, tone and playability are real nice.
         It was made this year, sold by Notable in late July. Went to Florida and then to Michigan. About three months since first delivery.
          Then from Michigan to Texas. It stops here and has found it's home. I don't name guitars, but this one is the Long Distance Voyager.

 Nope, what i got was a new guitar. No wear at all and looks real good.
      Sounds real sweet as well. Plus I know the brief history that brought it to me.

Thanks Mark. Four out of my five Larrivees are 12 fretters. I guess they are to my liking.
      I had too many factors restricting me from picking this one up in person. So shipping was best for now.

Darned the luck.
Was looking forward to seeing you again, Danny.

 I'll be back in Michigan by spring for sure. We'll get together then. I'd sure like to see some of your guitars as well, if it works out.

Congrats Danny!  Looks like a beauty and I bet it sounds even better.  We need more Larrivee's here in Texas!

Sounds like a story that needs to be told...

That's what I was thinking.  Beautiful acquisition, Danny.

         It's a simple story. The Larrivees acquired the spruce in Canada, the rosewood in India and I think the ebony comes from Africa.
         They put it all together in southern California, shipped it up to Notable in the northwest. Then in late July it was shipped to Florida, to a forum member there. Who sold it, for unknown reasons to me.
         Then it was shipped again, to southern Michigan. To another forum member, who decided he didn't have time to play guitar.
          
          So it was shipped again, this time to me in Austin, Texas. This guitar looks brand new, no scratches or even signs of being played.

          Not a very interesting story, but it's why I chose to call it,  "long distance voyage". I  have never bought a new guitar that traveled so much in three months.

           Kinda like me, out on my motorcycle, but a lot more miles than I usually put on.

Sounds like a good song is in there somewhere .... sung from the guitar's point of view.

I love my 000-60 for bare fingers. Sounds GREAT. It's rather bright when you use a pick. So the 40 has the modified bracing, right? Half Larrivee/half Martin? Looks nice!

Yup
Modified bracing, larger soundhole, like your 60. These new Larrivees have a very thin finish as well. No more UV POLY.
     It's very loud when strummed, brighter than mahogany, but darker than maple. I'd say the sound is almost too "big" when strummed. But as you said fingers sound real nice.

So you bought it From a guy in Florida and then you sold it to someone in Michigan and then you bought it back again; is that right Danny?
That doesn’t sound like such a simple story to me.

No. It was sold to a guy in Florida, who then sold it to a guy in Michigan.
    Who then sold it to me. I guess I better read what I wrote again.
