 Hi Folks,

 We've been getting a lot of requests for the dealer list. I thought I'd post it here for the Forums reference. Below is a list of dealers with orders.

 You can find news release here and you can find complete spec and images here.

 Here is the new updated video review by Heartbreaker guitars

Thanks for the list, John, that's helpful.

I love the video from Heartbreaker: "Jean built a special custom guitar for Tommy about 20 years ago ... ... he's used it on recordings for the last 25 years." 

Also, I'll leave a comment on their video, but their demo was lame - Tommy is a FINGERSTYLE player, and all the guy did in their demo (which he seems to do in lots of them) was strum some chords.

Ugh!!!  mad

But again - thanks for the links, John!

Here's Tommy playing his original: Click here.

So his original was a 12 fret as well. I'd never noticed that before when watching him play it in various videos.

Beautiful song and tone in this clip.

Watching Tommy play his in that video makes me think, if I order one of these, the first thing I'll do is take off the ugly pickguard. Sorry - it's not on Tommy's original and it doesn't belong on a C body Larrivee!!!

I might also have to put some open back tuners on it. Unfortunately, with the tuners Larrivee is using, that will leave some exposed holes. Oh well.

It does sound much better in the new clip Heartbreaker Guitars just did with some fingerstyle playing (at 4:35 in this clip).

I'd really like to hear Tommy himself demo one of these, though...

I just snagged to one that went to Stutzman's yesterday  +1  

Unbelievable guitar, great projection and sustain even under light fingerstyle.

Congrats! I listened to the soundclip w/ headphones earlier today. Sounds fantastic. Love that they went with the satin finish.

Curious if anyone knows if this comes with EXP 16's or 17's?

So... curious.
Can you tell us what the "factory set up" is on this?
Like what is the clearance for the low E at the first and 12th fret? That would be good enough ballpark.
I am not going to assume the action is the same as the normal Larrivee setup, which is a wee bit high, with a tad too much string relief.

I wish I could but my guitar shop does a setup on all the guitars from the factory.  I do know he mentioned the action was high. but didn't pay to close attention.  He knows how I like my guitars setup and this guitar really never made it to the floor.
