I see that you have several Larrivees. Have you ever owned a "regular" Larrivee OM? I'm highly satisfied with my OM-03R - but those -40's intrigue me.
I've not owned or played an OM-03. I have the L-05 and O-09 which, as far as I know, would have bracing design like the 03.

The sound, as expected, is different but one is not better than the other as far as I can tell.

I bought the 40R to scratch an itch for a small body rosewood guitar as most of my guitars are mahogany. As I mentioned earlier, I'd played a 000-28 Martin at a local store that was inspirational. So far, the 40R is, for me, equally inspirational.
It's great to have both a rosewood and mahogany guitar. Again, congrats and enjoy!

Don't know about the compound radius. If so, I like it. If not, I like it.


They should both be the compound radius, with those dates.
