*****SOLD******

After getting my hogtop F3 I've decided to let go my first forum issue OM-03. For those not familiar with the first Larrivee forum guitar...this is a 12 fret OM. I believe this is the guitar that started the 12 fret frenzy on this forum.  This guitar is a mahogany/spruce Om with a 12 fret neck. Larrivee included a mother of pearl inlaid logo and abalone rosette on this issue.

Since I've had it I installed a Greven pickguard and a John Pearse Armrest. The guitar has been buffed to a semi-gloss finish and is in wonderful condition. As I looked it over today I did not see any pick marks or dings. The top has developed a beautiful golden glow in the spruce. A strap button has also been added. It comes in the original hardshell Larrivee case. This guitar is #7 0f 17 for this run.

I offer this guitar shipped to mainland US for $SOLD. I will consider sales to other location but shipping will be added. E-mail for additional questions.

Someone should really snap this up. As the label says, the first run of Larrivee Forum guitars only produced 17 of these extraodinary guitars.

I have an all mahogany #9 of the 17 and I keep looking for something that has better tone, but have not been able to find it in a couple years of trading. There is something about the Larrivee OM with a 12 fret configuration that makes for a really big sounding OM. These don't come up for sale too often.

Good luck on your sale DOT, but I fear you will be back looking for a Forum I replacement, before too long.

Aw man, if I was not in the middle of buying a house right now (and thus trying desperately to NOT spend money)...

Do you think that the Greven pickguard and John Pearse Armrest can be safely removed?  (Just wondering...)

Gregg

A couple people have asked this question. i read a long post on the AGF about removing the Pearse armrests writen by Wade Hampton Miller (a Pearse endorser) and he said he has never had a problem removing an armrest.  I think the pickguard could be removed too. I have toyed with the idea of taking them off but I'd rather leave them in case the guitar doesn't sell and I keep it.

I have one of the JP armrests on my Guild and love it.  Your armrest is a smaller size, and looks really good on that guitar IMHO.  (I'm also in the clear or no pickgurad camp though)

   Gary, really nice guitar. If it was one of the all Hog ones, I'd be right on it. Good luck. You shouldn't have any problem @ that price, esp. with the extras?

   It is a sweet guitar.  Could you measure the depth at the end pin and what the lower bout, waist and upper bout are?
                  (I would really like to know)

  Thanks for that, I never had known what the Forum OM's were. I was hoping for the original Larrivee OM specs. 4'' max. depth etc.

For what it's worth, I just measured my 2002 OM-03 and those are the exact measurements I get.  Now...if you were just offering a discount to unemployed folks... whistling
