Nice to see "my" guitar chosen at the GTOM - before I've even touched it! Maybe it can be showcased there again - after it's finished. 

Have realized mine is right there beside you!  Nice    nice guitar

Since I took the option to add a pickup, I had to order an amp. Given my limits of talent and opportunity (and $$), I settled on a Fishman Loudbox Mini Charge, so I can play at a local outdoor jam that is held down at a campground on the Potomac River. Problem now is that I have the amp - but nothing to plug into it yet!

Exquisite torture?

You made an excellent choice. I have one of those, and they sound great and the charge lasts for a long time. (For best performance, I do use my Venue DI eq box in front of the amp, especially with K&K pickups, which can be too bassy/boomy without some extra eq help.)

This is a short work week - but maybe (hopefully?) we'll get another progress report... and even a few pics?

Anyway - Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Yes, Happy Thanksgiving.

On another note, for those of us (me), who like the pick guard look, will the included guard have some sort of adhesive on it or am I going to have a problem mounting it *nicely*on the guitar *if*I choose ?

According to the Larrivee website store, their pickguards come with 3M adhesive backing.
And for those of us wanting a clear satin pickguard, the item is out-of-stock on their site. Any ideas where to source a quality comparable one or when and if they may stock them again? Seems I remember something about being discontinued. My initial web search made my head spin.

There's also this if you want to cut out a similar more rectangular shape like the Larrivee originals.

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all! I am thankful that I am sharing this cool Forum VI experience with all of you! My first Larrivee arrived at my doorstep a few days before Thanksgiving in 2007...always extra gratitude for their amazing family and the instruments they build for us this time of year!

Cheers,

SS
