I generally sell the lower end models so I can replace them with higher end models.  More importantly, I constantly have to make room, GAS keeps me running out of places to put them...


Main rule of thumb is this;  the right number of guitars is however many you have at the moment plus at least one more...  Never give in to "too many guitars guilt", it will subside...

Sell a Larrivée? What are you talking about man? I did trade my son in law my L-01 for a beautiful Remington 870 Wingmaster. Leaves me with five acoustics, two electrics and a uke and the ability to defend them.

Hmmm...  trying to remember which one.  Either a D-03-12 or a OOV-03.  If the 12 string (which is probable) because of my love/hate relationship with 12 strings.  If the OO, my focus on 24” scale.

To buy another one.  Wish I could have kept both, but wasn't possible at the time.  I will have another one, I guarantee.

I have two for sale currently.

--I'm selling the D-03R-12 because I have FOUR 12-strings, and I really prefer guitars smaller than Dreadnoughts.

--I'm selling the LS-03 because it's mahogany, and I am really more of a Rosewood guy.  (honestly these days I am more of a Carbon Fiber guy)

Tastes change. Or a guitar doesn't live up to our expectations. As some players get older, a dreadnought is too hard on their shoulder, so they move to smaller guitars. Or you no longer gig, so you look for a couch/home guitar. Or you've started gigging, so you need a different guitar...

Or, you just want to try something different.

Thankfully, this is reasonably affordable with guitars, not so much with wives and children... (I keed, I keed  )

Tastes are fickle ... including wives and children.

Same here. No real good reason. I’m 50% of the way to correcting my gross error. I just got another OOO-40R.

Have never sold any of my Larrivee guitars. I currently own four of them. The L-03 is actually on consignment at Hatfield Guitar in Janesville, WI. I am heading up there, maybe yet today to bring it home and take it off consignment. The only thing that I do not get along with, is the narrow nut. Although, I have refined my fretting technique over the past two years, so I want to try it again. I feel I should be able to adapt, on the fly, to any guitar neck. Maybe it will be good training if I decide to further pursue the Ukulele or Mandolin.

Does your L-03 have a 1 11/16" nut width like a Larrivee Dread?  L models with a narrow nut are rare...  most are 1.75 inch which to me is wide...

Yes. It has a 1 11/16" nut, and a 40 style neck/headstock with open back grovers. It was a 2014 custom build. I purchased it used, 2.5 years ago.

Let me know should you decide to sell it, it is the only nut width I can play comfortably and L models are hard to come by with that distinction...

Haven't heard from him in a long time. He lived not so far away in Raleigh. I went up and met him and another forumite there years ago.

It wasn't different enough from the others to keep it.

With the exception of choirs and symphony orchestras, if two (of anything) are doing the same thing, one of them can and probably should, leave the stage.
