"Rob, I have owned a larrivee L-03R for about 2 years and absolutely love the sound. It takes a little longer to fully open up than some other makes because of the bracing, but if played often won't take but a few months or so. The sound is very…"

New to the group and to Larrivee!

Hello All,Just making an introduction.I joined the group last night after I placed my order for a new L-03R.  I should have it in my hot little  (not so little) hands next Monday.  It will be the new playmate of my Martin D-18 and I fully expect it to hold its own in every way.  I am very excited about this because I have wanted a L-03R for a very long time and really can't wait.  In fact, the anticipation for this L-03R is much greater than it was for my D-18.  I just love the sound of Sitka…See More

"Robert - any chance of making a warranty claim on your Fender? If not is there a possibility of getting it set up with a new nut to change the course spacing? Or have you just had it with that guitar and don't want to put anymore money into it?"

Hot Rod Old Skool 12

Just wondering if anyone has seen one of these guitars? AG did an article about them in 2013 and I have been trying, off and on, to find one but so far no luck. I have the disadvantage of not living in an area that has any decent resonator guitars to try so I'd appreciate if someone could steer me onto a good one. The Hot Rod Old Skool 12 sure reads and sounds like a nice resonator!See More

Defective Lamination?

I have written before of my disappointment with the close-set string pairs on  Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat 12  String  which I bought last April 2014. I pretty much gave up trying to play it.Now my disappointment has monetary reasons.This week when I brought it in as a trade-in, I was offered $350 trade-in which i considered very good because of how little more than that I actually paid it.Until the dealer took it out of case to get serial…See More

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly. I am amazed at how cleanly both bindings look.  Some finish touch up will be required, but the overall appearance is more than…
