I don't find much available on the sound.  Curious to know how it compares to the L-03.

They have made some in Mahogany and Rosewood.  I believe Mike in Lytle has played them both?

http://www.larriveeforum.com/smf/index.php?topic=50213.0 for my review.
Cannot totally compare to an L-03 (lack of experience), but I am sure you would be happy with either an L-03 or L-40M.
I do own an L-05 and two C-05s, which are mahogany guitars comparable to L-03.
The price difference is minimal between a new L-03 and L-40M.
Much of it is the way the guitars look, head stock and tuners.
The bracing is different, but I am not an expert judge on that.
I am a standard L-body fan. Because I like the standard head stock I will stick with the standard.
Now.... if Larrivee came out with an L-40-05 or L-40-09 or L-40-10 I might rethink things. I do not think that is going to happen.
MHO only.

Reading these different posts on all the models makes me wish I had a place to go where I could check them out. Far west Texas really stinks as far as guitar shops goes crying

Albuquerque may be your best bet.

Yeah, but it's a 4 hour drive and I'm not familiar with shops there.

I played a rosewood and a mahogany L40 at Elderly right after they came out. I didn’t care for them, as the sound was very bassy  and not as clear and balanced as the standard L models. This one just one example of each, so that doesn’t mean that they arent well loved by others. Play if possible, check YouTube samples, and check on the return policy.

On the other hand, if you like a big bass-dominant sound, they may be just perfect for you.
