Not sure where to post this so I chose this group because of some of the interesting guitars at this year's festival. Yes, most of it is electric but there is also a lot of acoustic music on this…Continue

JR, What is "Pickers"...a local or national show?  I would have loved to have seen that!!!   I wonder if a clip of it will be on You Tube?  Anybody finds it let us know!  Edward

I saw on pickers last night they found a ladies archtop circa 1935 Martin and bought it for $100. Had it appraised for $300 by parting it out. Wonder what it would have cost to restore? The appraiser said it would be 10 plus thousand in pristine shape. Any comments ? Any body see the show? The owner said he "found " it in a field lol. They don't throw those things out around here......

$2659 at Musician's Buy...and even this Larrivee has a 1 11/16" nut!

And, here's the specs from Larrivee:

Alas, that would not be me... :-(

That Larrivee retails for $4,000 new ... street would probably be at least $3,000.  $1,700 used sounds like a pretty sweet price for the person who happens to have that kinda cash in their gear fund!

Hi Michael,

I am not an OM player, but I sure love them!  I have a friend with a Boulder Creek dreadnaught size six string with the side hole...I am not sure if they are all like that...and it sounds great!  I believe that OM's are built for fingerstyle playing too and the width of the fingerboard is a bit wider to accommodate the style...that might work in your favor with your hand size...whatever you decide, let us know here what you do!  Thanks, Edward

I have 2 Taylor guitars that I love.  I have a chance to buy a Boulder Creek ECRM6-N All Koa Acoutic/Electric guitar.  I like the sound of a Koa, but don't want to spend 3 or 4 grand on one.  Also, I have never played an OM size guitar.  Does anyone know what this guitar sounds like?  it's only $769.00, so I know it's not Koa anything like a Taylor, but does it sound anything like Koa.  Is it worth the price?  Also, I have big fingers (16 1/2 ring finger and 11 1/2 pinkie).  They're big , but not long.  Will I be able to play an OM type guitar without getting my fingers all in a knot?

Perhaps they are a secret stash from Stradivari! ;-)
