Hi everyone. Im new here. Im from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This is my first posting although Ive been browsing here since last 2 months.
Can anyone  help me compare these 3 guitars? Ive never  tried any of them. The  only Jumbos i ever tried were the Taylor 315ce 2000 and a Reissue of the old Gibson SJ 100. They are the only Jumbos i could find here.( in Malaysia) I own a Taylor 412K 1996 and a Larrivee LV03RE 2004. I want a jumbo since it SHOULD be a different sounding guitar in terms of the character of tone , volume.
I was originally looking out for a Taylor Jumbo. But the consistency of all the Larrivees i have played has led me to believe that all Larrivees are great sounding guitars regardless of the sizes, series. I have only tried the Parlors and the Ls. I was impressed with ALL.
I need your input. Thanx

I haven't played the larrivee jumbos but have played the taylor jumbos and they sound very bright. It is probably something you either like or you don't. I prefer the gibson jumbos myself. They sound really balanced and the ones I've handled have been beautiful build quality.

Larrivee Jumbos are one of the best sounding guitars in their line.  Unfortunately, due to the nature of the jumbo, they are a bit difficult to play.  If you are comfortable holding one, then I say go for it, you can't go wrong.  Now you just have t find one for sale because Larrivee stopped making them.
