Just wondering how many active members have the Forum RS4 and have posted pics of them?

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

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

would have been nice to have a "group" shot back when they were built and shipped, I wonder if Matthew or anyone has one?

I had #10.  Pretty sure it was the only spec'd with dual full size humbuckers.  Sold it to another forum member here.

There were 11 Forum V's made.  There was a lefty made, (#2) with 1 mini HB and 1 full HB.   
I have (#5) which has a Bigsby, and 1 mini HB and 1 full HB. These are awesome guitars.

I thought that there were 10 of them, not 11.

So ... I don't recall. Besides being numbered, what's the difference between a "Forum" RS-4 and a "regular" one? Enquiring minds and all. All that comes to mind is Christians and lions and a chariot race.

Tom, I think at the time the finish for the Forum RS-4 was unique to it, and it was the first time mini-humbuckers were offered in the RS-4 (humbuckers were optional). And gold hardware. It may have had a different inlay on the headstock, too (I'm too lazy to go back and check pics at the moment). That's pretty much it.

Cool. Mine, Lollar equipped, has been at my buddies for several months after using it for some recordings. I've been playing the little black beast LT-1 but maybe I should get it back.

Forum V project.

There were a lot of firsts associated with the Forum V RS4.

It was the first Forum electric guitar.
It was the  first time Larrivee offered custom mini-humbuckers.
It is the first Larrivee guitar run to have the “Ice Tea Burst” color.
Each guitar was named "Forum V" and numbered on the back of headstock "1 of X" via traditional water slide decal.

The Forum V has a Vine inlay headstock.

Other options included different pickups, different colored hardware, and a Bigsby option.
The Forum V was made with a satin mahogany neck.
One lefty was made.

The first Forum V discussion was started in the Larrivee Forum by member “Mikeymac” on September 30th 2011 with the support of Matthew Larrivee.  Forum member “JOYCEfromNS” then took the reigns as the Forum V leader on October 6th 2011.  LA Guitar Sales was secured as the dealer for the project. 

Eleven total guitars were made in the run including the builders proof.

Ah so! Can we get pictures or a link to them? For reasons I won't go into I didn't get involved. Also being an early adopter of the RS-4, I already had one. Now, of course, I wish I had have made it an even dozen.
