I've owned a Larrivee D-03 for some time now, and loved it from the first time I played it. It was being compared to some Taylor's in a slightly higher price range, and it sounded & fit better than they did (to my taste). If you're a flat-picker or finger-style player, Larrivee's have lots of rich tone and detail, and a really solid bottom-end sound when required. This last feature is nice when a higher capo location is being used, in the way many Jethro Tull songs are written. I would definitely buy another Larrivee when needed, and highly recommend them. And you've already experienced the difference that quality strings make. I've been using Elixir Nanoweb 12-53's on mine for about a year now, and they go great together.
