Hi Mike.

Please include me on the list. The build looks great! (No pick-up, no cutaway, RH, Moon spruce, 40 bracing, rounded headstock…I would vote for short scale, if that was offered… and open back -40 tuners). As many have stated, price will be the determining factor.

Thanks for spearheading this.
Peace, Jeff
I added you.
I recognize you from the other forum. Welcome.

No it is not too late. I will add you to the list. It is just for keeping track of ourselves.
You know, the last time you posted in the forum, I wasn't even a member yet.
I am assuming you are right handed and I am also assuming you want the standard LS body?
Soooo... welcome back!
Mike

lol, definitely been quite a few years since I've been here.  Yes, RH.  Prefer cutaway if it is an option, but am OK with standard LS body otherwise.

There is no late breaking news.
I sent the spec to John Monday.

I've not a shred of doubt that you'll pass us information just as soon as you get it and are able! It's just the anticipation is kind of cool, actually.

And you would be right. I am honestly relieved to take a break.
The F-VI has moved along at a blistering pace. It took 30 days from the start of the thread to sending a specification to Larrivee.
That has not happened before. There was at least one forum guitar discussion that went on for a year resulting in nothing.

Well, that break didn't last long.
John says they should have some pricing by the end of the week.
They have the walnut for the sides now too.
They have wood sets for 20 guitars, possibly more.
No other info.

Yep.
And a bit of info you you as well, regarding LS sizing front to back re: the classical body.
Jean measured some recent LS bodies and they were 86 mm (3.38) by the neck and 105 mm (4.12) depth at lower bout.
There are tolerances that play as well.

Responding to my follow up question regarding how to place orders, who the dealer is, down payment, John said all that should be nailed by end of the week.
I have no idea how to deal with the mayhem after we get that information. We should probably think about it.

I would suspect that after the specs and dealer are finalized. each interested person/customer will have to contact the dealer individually to confirm their specs and make a down payment. And of course, a closing order date will have to be established.

Depending on price, there may be some attrition from the running spreadsheet list. Weighing that with the number of available guitars (mentioned as 20 plus ?), I would think the original group would get first come first served. Just in case there's a late run of interest.

Thanks for the updates, Mike.  The spreadsheet does not mention 12 fret.  Is that just a given?

Yes, that is a given. The spec says 12 fret, though.
You will note I didn't specify the F-VI has any strings, I am hoping Larrivee includes those as a free upgrade  bigrin

LOL!!!  

Good one, Mike!

I count 21 names on that list - that's a good "core group" - acknowledging that everyone won't be able to make it to the finish line, but a few others may finally jump on borad as all the specs are firmed up and are certain.

Looking forward to the next word from John. Jr. & Larrivee
