Default NGD - My 1st Larrivee (OM-40R)

Well, my first Larrivee (OM-40R) arrived in the mail today and it is truly as advertised! The looks and sound are special and as the strings (John Pearse 600L) settle a bit I expect it will only get better. Feel of neck is a little different but we need to adjust to all things new. THANKS to John at Shoreline for a great customer experience! Pics are attached. The other guitar in the pics is my 1989 Taylor 810 which I've owned since the early 90's. Was looking for a smaller body guitar with good sound projection (to compliment my Taylor) and I found it in this fine instrument. Love DR Sunbeams (use 11's for playability) on the Taylor and plan on experimenting with them on the Larrivee down the road. My initial sense is that the Pearse 12's on the Larrivee feel a lot like the 11's on my Taylor 810, so I plan on trying DR Sunbeams 12's on the Larrivee after I give the Pearse a chance. Any thoughts on strings? Life is good and got even better today!
