Didn't larrivee move there shop out of Canada?
I didn't think much of the Simon and Patrick brands but I do like the Norman I think they are great sounding guitars are they not all made by the godin brand?

How about Morgan Guitars?  the ones I have played are all expensive in the $2000 + range.
Do they have cheaper models?

ship, I've played some Simon & Patrick models over the years, and they really have a narrower neck feel than the standard Seagulls. The present spec, at least, for the S&P models is 1.72 at the nut. They (S&P) all have solid tops, at least nowadays, and they do have folk models (for example, this).

And the Seagull folk has a very wide nut (bad news for countrylady), so actually among the Godin acoustics, the Simon & Patrick folk or one of the solid-top Art & Lutherie folks (not all of the A&L ones have solid tops) might be the best bet for countrylady unless she really likes the booming dread sound--the folk guitar sound would be more boxy. (I'm not sure about the Norman nut widths, so I'm leaving them out--others here might have that information.)

magoo99, Larrivee makes some guitars in California, but does not outsource to Asia or Latin America, etc. See here.

Thanks Arzy,  good to know they are still here.
I love their guitars but find them a little pricey.
but then again you get what you pay for.

Larrivee's just around the corner from me Magoo, and yep Morgans are on the higher price list, but then for a hand built their prices are very reasonable and they make some very nice models, had one for about 4 years but traded it for something else.Arzy, Normans are almost the same size as the S&P.Wow its great when one can share this kind of information on this forum and enjoy it.louis[:D]

Try harder? Okay......

You're always harping on people for discussing things that aren't Washburn or US Music related but at the same time you go on and on regularly about every Canadian guitar brand out there (among many other unrelated things). It's very irritating when you make up rules then break them.

I think it's a legitimate forum issue. Are you ever going to address it?

Huh? I ignore your emails because of the incessant harrassment and sharing of personal info. That has nothing to do with this and it's not going to change.

The legitimate issue is you making up rules that aren't in the posted forum rules then breaking them. You let some people say whatever they want and you moderate the crap out of others. Dave posted my real name to get a shot at me and you didn't say a word! To be honest it looks very much like you're aiming your new-found powers at certain people (that don't care for you) and letting others continue as usual (and then some). THAT'S the issue.

Sorry I am not as articulant as you and Rocket, so please spell it out like you might for those of us that aren't as well educated as you two are.You will have to be very specific and you will have to have proof of what you are saying, so please, I am still here.louis  and please I still have the last several e-mails I sent to you, they were regarding postings from newbies who had a question re-whatever.
