Why does everything that celebrates America need to be so LOUD?   bigrin
Canada got a classy model with little maple leaves.  I know many would love a tasteful, wind-blown US flag inlay on the headstock, eagle inlays as the fret markers.  Not that I'm bashing.  I know that's a classic design and I'm sure those bright models will sell quickly and be appreciated.  I'd just love to see someone make a US pride guitar that was artistic and not over the top.

Canadians get to feel all smug about their country. Americans get to feel proud of their country.

I think maybe Mr. Walkerman should give some context regarding the photo.
A photo with no context.... hmmm.

Looks like 14 red, white and blue L bodies. I wouldn't buy one but I'm a smug Canadian. I thinks it's a great marketing idea having lived in the US, however.

No reason for them not to sound good. Larrivee L bodies, after all.

That is an assumption.  When I look at those, I see the streets of Bakersfield .......
Alternatively, JCL is French Canadian, and those guitars look a lot like the French flag.  besides, i believe they are China bound

To me they don't, simply because that style has been done as the US flag on guitars many times before.  You'd leave a lot of people scratching their heads if you showed them that and said it was French because we've seen it as Americana for decades now.

Well, if they're headed to France, some here can breathe a sigh of relief! (Personally, I don't care - no one's forcing me to buy/play one...)

Whoa horsey!

couple things of note.
 Just because Jean is "french" Canadian-( and only HE can make that claim btw) does not mean an immediate connection to France.
 That's a wee bit of an issue regarding our culture.

Also, the Flag of France ( unless those guitars are lefties) in fact does have the same colours, however,  the red & the blue would be reversed- if they were destined for France.

I re-iterate, the OP has posted this picture, with, or with-out the back story, and this thread, could have him, and Jean chuckling at our expense.

Ya just never know about these things......

Yup I just marked the originating comment as another example of thinking you know something when you really don't - sometimes a little knowledge is dangerous.. For our American friends it would be like equating English speaking Americans to England  whether their forefathers did or didn't come from there
