Ain't going to 'give away' such a good guitar.
The thing is, I get kind of guilty when I have something that I don't use for ages.
I feel that someone else should be getting the pleasure out of it.
As much as I hate it, I do tend to be a bit of a collector.
I've got five guitars now, two resos, a dreadnought, a triple O and a parlour guitar, as well as six ukes.
They're starting to fill up the spare bedroom and I ain't even bought any electrics (yet)! :roll: :lol:

601, Larrivee was started in Canada in the 70's by Jean Larrivee and is now ran by him and his two sons, Matthew and John Jr. Matthew currently designs all their pickups for their new electric models. Larrivee has an interesting history. They've had shops in a couple different spots in Canada and now their current Canadian shop is in Vancouver, BC. Their American facility is in Oxnard, California. Their Canadian facility only produces 01, 02 and 03 models. The 05 and up are all produced in California, along with their electric Bakersfield, Lancaster, RS-2 and RS-4. Jean's wife does the amazing inlay work on all their guitars, too. They are a very cool company. Not a single one of their guitars is made without the finest wood. Even their lowest end 01 model acoustics are made with all solid woods and every one of their guitars are hand built. All woods used are inspected by the man himself, as well. There isn't a piece of wood on a Larrivee that doesn't pass through Jean's hands. My L-03, has solid sapele back and sides, solid Sitka spruce top with maple binding, ebony fretboard, maple Larrivee inlaid logo, rosewood headstock veneer and a perfect satin finish. I got mine out the door for the unheard of price of $885 from a shop in Phoenix, brand new. It absolutely killed every Taylor, Guild, and Martin I could find in the sub $1500 price range. Fantastic guitars, and the fact that they make every model left handed for no additional charge, I'll be a customer for life.

Another cool thing they do is over at the Larrivee forum, if enough members get together, the factory will produce Forum model guitars. They're currently on their fifth model of guitar created specifically for Forum members.

But backto my OP, I think the collective wisdom of the forum dwellers has shown me that we go through "cycles" in the style of music we make with a style of guitar, although I'm still firmly in the bottleneck reso groove. This afternoon I sat on a camp stool in our Botanical Gardens in glorious and almost forgotten sunshine and slid and slurred for a couple of hours. :D Peace

But no cheap models made off shore
