Description

Leo Posch is one of the better builders out there keeping the traditional forms alive and well and sounding great. This brand new, 2015 J-M is a fine example of what traditional Dreadnought design can achieve--in this world where new and strange designs are cropping up everywhere, Posch can still compete with the best of them. This Dreadnought is done up in a rich, dark sunburst which covers the Adirondack Spruce top, and a sweet set of Mahogany for the back and sides. Of course, the tone is going to be warm and woody with a combination like that, but this guitar also has solid, punchy mids for blues or traditional music--anything with an aggressive attack. Flatpicking is what this baby was made for, and flatpicking is where it shines, creating lots of bark and sustain. For being brand new, it sure sounds like a vintage Dreadnought from fifty years ago, and is only going to get better with time. This guitar comes with the original TKL hardshell case.

When I think of what makes a good Dreadnought, I immediately think about the low-end. It should be big, deep, and responsive. Folks, this J-M from Leo fits the bill to a T. In another twenty years, we're going to be very grateful to Leo for keeping the tradition of these designs alive with excellent guitars like this one.
 
A great reproduction of a pre-war Gibson J-45 style guitar. The tone on this one is as good as most Gibsons that I've played with a nice big controlled bass response and sparkling treble overtones. Great for strumming and fingerpicking. The colors on this one are beautiful.
