Since this thread has the name Larivee in it I'll add one more - Morgan sound familiar? Morgan was the head luthier at Larivee and was the only other person, besides the family, to be able to declare an instrument ready to go out for sale. He is apparently making his own - all hand made - just him. They are a bit more spendy $2200 - but I'll find out if it is as good as they say tomorrow. They have three of them - all spruce tops but the back and sides are Koa, Rosewood, and one other. All Ebony fretboard, bridge, pins, - ought to be interesting at the least.

Damn Rick - I was pretty careful and had Jan pretty OK with $900 for the Tacoma - but $2200 may be a bit of a stretch -

I know!!! I could get it for her for Christmas! Since she is learning piano I'd have to play it, you know - break it in and all - until she mastered the piano and then opted for the guitar - - - What do you think??
