The FedEX guy is my friend

Brand new (used) pretty just showed up. Or as my Browncoat buddies would say "Ooohh, shiny"

It's a semi custom Larrivee 6-string. LS-03. It is one of the Forum-III guitars, that were custom ordered by the folsk at the Larrivee Forum.

Custom 12-fret design, herringbone soundhole rosette, bone sadle. Clean fretboard with no markers except three dots at the 12th fret. There were several options, this one is Italian Spruce over Mahogany, with maple binding and end cap. Previous owner upgraded the original Ping Tuners with some nice Gotoh 510s.

Signed by Jean Larrivee, #34 of 78. Given the wood choices available, there are only about 3-dozen guitars like this in the world.

Pictures later. For now here is a pic of the guitar being built at the Larivee factory in Vancouver. (3rd from left)

Ok one more of the soundhole:
