Down the road I may regret this, but we have six Larrivees in the house and I never play the Forum III.

I play my OM-03R ten times as often, I play my Parlor at least a hundred times as often.  I've decided I am really not a fan of Italian spruce, sounds too much like Adirondack for my taste.  Too much punch and clarity.

$1000

Trade straight across for a Forum IV if anyone wanted to do so.  Would also be interested in an OM-40W (pre-October)

Otherwise I'm using the funds towards a Halcyon.

Previous owner swapped out the tuners to Gotoh 510s.  Cosmo black with ivoroid buttons.  
Previous owner also added a strap button at the heel on the treble side  (IMHO the correct location)
Clear pickguard.  Tort guard and TR wrench included of course.  Pics show boxwood pins but I have swapped the originals back in.

If I had the bux, I’d give this a go.

I have one, and love it.  Good sound, nice neck, great set up, subtle appearance.  (I have a 1982 Seagull with the satin finish.  That finish held up to daily playing for 2o years before it started so show real wear,  I've become a believer in the satin finish.)  I think these are really good value; modestly priced, high performance.

I will be driving out to the SF Bay Area (San Jose/Milpitas)  for the weekend of March 24-25.

(going to go see Heather Dale, who is awesome, and who's lead guitarist plays a Larrivee LV-03R)


So if anyone in Central Cali or the Bay Area is on the fence on this one, I am willing to bring the Forum-III with me for a delivery.

I assume it has a 1 3/4 inch nut width?  There are many who love 12 fretters, including me, I cannot figure out why it has not already sold...

Still available.  Though I had a buyer but he ended up having to send money to the IRS instead.

Been humidified since I owned it. (I'm the 2nd owner).  Fill the humidifiers ever other Sunday night.

The Forum-III guitars started shipping in March of 2009

Part of the reason it hasn't sold - it's not left-handed. If it were, I would have bought it immediately!

There's no pick guard and with symmetrical bracing it would be a fairly simple conversion to lefty..    just sayin.   new nut and re-slot the bridge and your good to go.    There were a fair number of lefties in the original 87 Forum III guitars..    Most of us who got one have been reluctant to give them up though

I was afraid someone would remind me of that... (cuz that's what I did with the '79 I got - converted it to lefty and I LOVE it!)


I'd just have to deal with the strap button being on the wrong side; have to do something about that hole...

Previous owner did that.  I tie my OM-03 at the headstock like Jean does.
