The L body is unique to Larrivee, a proprietary design, so to me the one most associated.  Before becoming a mass producer, Larrivee was best known for their inlays so make that a fancy L :  L-10 or L-72.

Although I love my D09, the L gets my vote as the signature Larrivee too. I do fine with the 1 3/4" neck, but heaven for me would be and L09 or L10 with a 1 11/16" neck!

Come on guys, didn't you know that Jean Larrivee built up all of his experience so that he could one day build the Jumbo?  He then "discontinued" the Jumbos so he could build them secretly, and stash them away for himself.  True story.

I would have to say the C.

That sharp cutaway is signature Larrivee.  I really want a C-05...

Geez,  so many votes for the C. 

Well since the C is a variation of the L...... in the end, the L wins!!  :GRN> :WNK> :GRN>

My next guitar will be an L model because it is the most Larrivee-like model. It is the original Larrivee body style made by Jean. Every other body size can be purchased from other makers. I have a Larrivee D-03, but wish I had gone for an L-03 since it is so uniquely Larrivee.
