So I leave the store and get in the car to drive to another one and see what is out there in Larrivée land. I also decide to call my friend who is a regional manager of one of Canada's music store chains. I ask him to look around and see what they have, and if he can find something like the satin finished OM-05 guitar I found online at a store in the US. I end up going to 2 more stores and trying out the guitars. Good stuff, but nothing speaks to me like the first guitar I played that morning. I get a call back from my friend. He says his company has a couple of satin OM-05's in stock at the warehouse, so if I am interested, he can bring one by the store for the next day. I say ok, let's check it out. When I go in the next day one strum and..... bingo! That's the one. It sounds HUGE for such a small guitar. Very comfy to play. I decided to call him Max after the priest I met in the music store. Sometimes, things just work out. I went from being bummed out about missing out on a great guitar, to ending up with an amazing guitar!
