Checked out his website, FB page and some of the song videos - very nice instruments, and some talented people playing them. I'd never heard of the Hupman Brothers - lotsa talent there!

I've been playing guitar a whole lot more these days in anticipation of the Forum VI. My go to is my OM-40M, and I'll also grab the Martin 000-16 for what is usually only a brief change up...the OM-40 just sounds so much better to my ears. But I do love that "other" guitar as it sounds unique enough to keep and appreciate. But it's got me hoping that the F VI has it's very own tonal qualities. Has me wondering if it'll become my new go to in the long run. I'll never go wrong with that OM-40, that's for certain.
I should also see my second F33 show up in a week or so, and there'll be that whole comparison thing to go through.

Will that be a new mandolin, used or NOS? Is Larrivee still making mandolins?

It's used, made in '08. I bought a beautiful F33 last year on Reverb and absolutely love it. I've always got my eye out for a Larrivee oval hole and I just happened to run across this one on an almost over auction. I was the only bidder. I believe Larrivee stopped making mandolins in '08 or '09. The few I've seen or heard were wonderful.

Looks like you've got 3 nice distractions! I've been twiddling on my mandolin a lot, and realized I'm soloing on guitar next month at an event and need to start playing one of those again. Sure love my OM-40! Oh, but those LS-03 Forum VI's are going to be special.

I’m not sure if it was listed earlier. What were the final numbers among the 14 for LS, LSV’s and lefty/righty?
