I agree JW.   Chose the strings first.  Then set-up around those.  Just the way I do it.  D'ad 16's are always the choice for me.

Happy New Year!

Not sure if it's what you were looking for, but here is a bone replacement:

Wow! That's quite the difference between the bass and treble sides. Good one.

D'ad 16s have become my choice as well - especially with mahogany.

Does anybody have a photo of the bone replacement? I'm curious about the string compensation Larrivée is currently using.

Here's a pic Saffron

strange sometimes how things work.  When i replaced the tusq with bone on my old L09 it changed it very much.  I actually liked the tusq better as it really mellowed out the sound compared to the peircing bone sound.  This is the only guitar I have ever had that liked the tusq better.   Just sounded deeper and rounder with it.  My other guitars have been the opposite.


Peter, you should keep all those one liners in a collection  ^_^

I'll let you guys know within the week. :)  Just waiting for my tuners before I do it.  I also will have sound samples for you to show the difference.
