I have a hard time in general playing guitars that aren't my own, and pretty picky on how they feel.

I tend to use 11s on acoustic, so store guitars tend to feel different anyway.

What I have appreciated about Larrivee guitars over the years is the confidence in knowing what they're likely going to "feel like", though I don't know how that'll change with the new fretboard radius; I haven't tried one of those yet.

Many moons ago I was actively involved with an old distributor for the brand in the UK (around 10-15 years ago) so had the fortunate ability to test-run a number of models over a number of years.

I always gravitated to the 03 series guitars that we brought in, as they suited my preferences more - simple, elegant, satin finish etc. Never been a fan of "bling" on guitars, though Wendy's headstock work is something else!

Larrivee - one of the rare confidences that I could buy "sight unseen" and somewhat know what I was getting.

I concur with the above.
 I never have a problem buying a larrivee guitar "blind" on line.
I never have to worry about the workmanship, how it will play, how it will sound etc.

Of course a couple appropriate questions are asked, and close up pics of the bridge/string angle, frets etc.
 as a rule, I am always pleasantly surprised when I have a larrivee shipped to me form some where far away.
it's always a relief to know it will be fine.

 can't say I've had the same experiences with other brands.....
oh, and presently waiting for one coming from midwest USA.....

"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
 Too few brain cells to be bothered with...
