I've dreamed of owning a Larrivée for 25 years and finally bought one - an OM-03E - a coupleof years ago. It's all I dreamed it would be, and I expect to play it (God willin' and the creek don't rise) for the rest of my life. I've sat in guitar shops and played Martins and Gibsons that cost three times as much as my Larrivée, and I've yet to hear a sound I like better.
I also keep a Seagull S-6 Folk in the house - I enjoy the darker sound you get from the cedar top. But my Larrivée is my pride and joy.
