when you put in a custom order for a J-10FM12 with a custom neck.  Which will probably run you 5 Grand.  Other than that.  NO.

I think Randy has the last one we will see for awhile, but I don't think his has a maple neck.  I would say the odds are pretty slim.  If they made one, I would buy it in about a nano second.  Awhile back, Dave at GA had what he thought was a J-09-12 coming, and I bought it.  It turned out to be a 6 string, the bing4sons bought.  He said that the Larrivee folks looked all around the factory to see if they had a jumbo 12 in production, and they couldn't find anything.  Too bad if you ask me.  I really like the J-05-12 I have, a great guitar if you ask me, and if a 12 string maple sounds anything like the J-09 in maple I have, it must just be one sweet guitar.

I think I got the "next-to-last" J-10-12FM. Dave advertised another one after I bought mine last summer.

pics at my www pages if you want to see it.

I wouldn't change anything about it. Its the finest 12 string I've ever played. (well, I'm somewhat partial to it)  ^_^

Furthermore, who'd WANT to?  Nice way to make a guitar play stiff and kill its tone.

I believe all of the Gibson J-200's....including the older, wonderful ones you see folks like Pete Townsend, George Harrison, EC, Chris Issack and on and on  playing ALL had maple necks.....it musta been OK for them....
