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?

Update
John sent an email today, general in nature.
Turns out we have orders for 15 guitars, not 14. One came in after June 30, but was able to be included. John said it was a forum member. John had mentioned awhile back he had been talking to a forum member who might order the F-VI but might want to remain anonymous. John did not mention if it was that person, so maybe we will hear from whoever Order #15 is.
The orders have all been passed along to Oxnard and the next step is the F-VI orders will be put on "the start list". I don't know how long it is in between being put on "the start list" before Larrivee actually "starts", but I am hoping production photos will be coming soon.

At least tell us about any Larrivees you currently have and what motivated your late decision!
