I love my P-03, but some of the material I'm playing will be better for a full-scale guitar. I do like the feel of a smaller guitar, but want to have something other than a parlor-sized; preferably with a cutaway (but not required). P.S. I have a L.R. Baggs Anthem-SL pickup in my P-03 and it sounds pretty darn big when plugged in, but my fingers feel cramped sometimes.

An 00, then an OM or 000.  The P has a 24" scale and a 1 3/4" nut.  It depends on how your fingers feel cramped...  You aren't going to find many nuts wider than 1 3/4".  Any 00's or OM's will typically have a 25.5" scale.  You might be able to find an 00 with a 24.75" scale.  Assuming Larrivee builds...

Thanks Ed! So something like this https://reverb.com/item/42803899-larrivee-00-40-mahogany-2015-satin-natural is kind of my guitar, but bigger?

I recommend 000 or L. Both have a very full sound. OM is just a little more midrange focused, but still versatile. In partial to the 000, because of the way the lower body area allows for a nice bass response.

I believe the next size up is technically the single O (long scale). But good luck finding one. They are pretty rare. That OO-40 sure looks sweet!

I don't remember hearing of any O or P Larrivee's with more than a 24" scale (they are essentially the same size with bracing differences).  I think Martin and other makers put out 0's with longer scales.

That OO does look pretty nice.

I think you're correct Ed. I was thinking of the slotheads which I thought were long-scale but I it looks like the single-O was 24". Shame they don't make these anymore. Probably too costly to make?

Or, not enough demand?  There are still 0-40 (in mahogany and rosewood) models listed.  I'm not sure of the differences between 40 and 50 series (satin vs gloss looks like), but I bet you could get gloss and slotted headstock as custom options.
