I've also found that the #20 radius (which comes with the Larrivee purchased units) fits Larrivees well.

I'm never sure what the radius is on Larrivee fingerboards - it's been advertised as 16, also as a compound radius (16-20/21) or even 20. I know Martin says their are 16, and Larrivee's certainly seem a bit flatter to me.

  For absolute clarity....
  - Up until October 1st 2017 • All Larrivée's are compound radius from 16° at the nut, down to 21° at the last fret
  - Post October 1st 2017 • All Larrivée's are no longer compounded and are now built 16° straight the from nut to last fret

Its that kind of CLEAR post from John that makes "our" brand special.

 And it's that kind of post to make me step up to the window and buy one.

 Thanks for this, truly.

Very impressed with mine. Personally liked the ability to easily move it with my fretting hand while playing and it's ability to fit multiple guitar necks.

The only complaint(s) I have are minor. The jury is still out on it as far as "comfort" is concerned but I am willing to give it a fair shake.

1) The rosewood is a little on the "dark" side which makes the engraved Larrivee logo almost disappear. Maybe I will do something about it with a lighter color paint on the logo. Gold?  An abalone inlay would be cool.  lol

2) It is also the widest or thickest, heaviest, most "beefy" capo I own. It's going to take some getting used to.  I have a G7 that I really like and it is very small and lightweight.

3) I also find I am installing the Thalia with the hinge hanging down on the high E string just to keep the Larriveee logo "right side up" It's not the easiest way to mount it but it sure looks good.

Oh man, I just had a wacky idea for a "matching" inlay pattern of a section of the "Impossible Knot" just to give the 50th it's very own capo.   wacko I know I'm crazy, you do not need to point it out.
