This from the Guitar Tex FB page Oct 15. Back in mid March this year, they said they had ordered 10 Larrivees. A few Larrivees have dribbled in over the last few months, but apparently they have got more just now. This would make an approx 7 month wait.

From looking at the pic, I am "figuring" the models are as follows... from left to right.
1. D-40RW
2. OM-40 with burst finish, looks like RW.
3. OM-03RW
4. OM-40 mahogany/moonwood (they have had this one a while)
5. LV-03 mahogany with a pickup
6. LV-03RW
7. OM-03 mahogany

Just thought I would share this good news. I haven't been there in a few weeks, and I am not sure if this is their total of Larrivees. One or two might be hanging behind the counter.
Mike

That would be a pretty cool selection for someone who wanted to play a bunch of guitars. I’d drive 6 hours to test drive that group of guitars.

Pretty good guesses on most of those - but the 2nd one from the back won't have Rosewood sides, since it has a "Hog" (Mahogany of some type) top.

Love the JCL headstock logo on the 4th from the back.

Yes, the burst one was a wild guess on my part, thanks.
The JCL is the mahogany/moonwood I played awhile back.

I would love to go to the store
Here in Los Angeles California there are no places that carry Larrivee  guitars
I will be in Vegas in a couple weeks so I might go check out heartbreaker guitars
I really love their  YouTube channel

Wow - that's an excellent selection of Larrivees! One could only hope for one or two more 05 or 09 gloss models...

That 09 has been there for 10 years. They never seem to stray from the 03's, but will have the occasional special wood back and sides The owner also has a 50th anniversary hanging behind the sales counter.
