I'd certainly consider any type of Forum OO offer, it being my favorite body size

To make it a special unique offering I think there'd be interest in a short scale neck

Another vote here for 12 fret, short scale 00

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I recall that the Larrivee's didn't like doing cedar tops cause the wood is oilier than spruce making it harder to keep the bridges glued on?


I believe Jean said he doesn't like using cedar because it is so soft and dents easily, even during the build process. He also prefers the tone of Spruce(s) to Cedar.

That would be cool, but it will incur an upcharge (listed as $200 on Larrivee's Custom Price List).

I'll see your 1 ¹³/¹⁶" nut and raise you one 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle -    whistling

I recently got a Guild OOO 12 fret with that spacing and it's a blast having all that room for fingerpicking.

Kodos on the typography!
