They were both gorgeous but in the end, I think I swayed toward the LV-09. Would love to meet it again.


That must have been over 10 years ago... the pair that was sitting in a queen street was definitely a sight.

Was disappointed that they didn’t have enough larrivees stocked up when I visited Auckland last year

For those who have never seen one. My favourite Larivee model.

Correct.
I worry you’d quite like a number of my guitars, Slowy.

Don't doubt it for a second. Though as Oleg and Conway will confirm, I can be effusive and blunt in equal measure. :rofl:

This is true, and often the wrong way around. :wink:

I can't find a glamour shot but here's mine in action:

This one is a slightly odd model, an S7p.
Same woods, design, bracing pattern, etc as a O10, but to provide a lower cost guitar, they built them with a one piece neck, and very simple binding and finishing. It's an amazing guitar, and I got it for a good price, maybe not amazing, but I was able to play it first and it's become my favourite guitar.

I'd just like to add that one of you should keep your eyes open, just in case of a low flying ducks or a flock of annoyed starlings coming in low etc...

Fair enough, but next time you might want to set some perimeter alarms. Even milk bottle tops on a tripwire would help ;)

Set up a perimeter of Chardonnay bottles and they'd never get through.
