Description

Across America there are some great Luthiers that live under the radar. They focus on repair primarily but also build some truly fine instruments and their insight from the repair world informs their building in wonderful ways. Leo Posch is one of these great luthiers. Working in Kansas, Leo runs a very successful repair business and has a loyal following of players that clammer for the few guitars he builds. This D-18 is a cannon, absolutely one of the loudest and sweetest sounding Mahogany/Adirondack dreads you'll find anywhere. We love it. The Adirondack is wide grained like some of the best old Martins and it beautifully constructed. Flatpickers and strummers alike will absolutely love this one and fingerstyle players will also since it has a 1 3/4" nut.

The term cannon is overused, but not by us. If we say it's a cannon it is. This is a CANNON, big and strong but also really sweet and musical. I find the voice inspiring and this guitar hard to put down!
 
Leo Posch is building guitars in the pre-war Martin tradition, using hide glue for the joints and nitrocellulose lacquer for his finish. This guitar is very light and extremely loud. It's very much like the old Martin D-18's that I've played, just great.
