Description

We played our first Posch last year and we immediately called Leo and invited him to send us guitars any time. He is a maker with a keen sense of how to capture the vintage lure of the best D-18 Martin has ever made. This guitar, like the last, sounds and feels like a 70 year old guitar even though it's new. No small feat. The Cuban Mahogany body, which is the densest Mahogany, has a voice that is loud and powerful but also deep and rich. This one is a cannon that will clearly continue to grow into a monster guitar. This one is barely preowned, it's owned by Leo Posch and comes with a full warranty.

There are only a handful of makers that impress me as really being able to capture the vintage voice. It's not easy to build a new guitar that feels alive and mature. This one does it in spades. If you long for a 1938 D-18 but can't quite reach that far, this could be a guitar for you. It's amazing today and I can only imagine what a few years will bring out in it. Plus this one has a full warranty from Leo Posch.
 
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 other Posch that we sold a while back which was one of my favorite Dreads to come through. This one is equally as good and up there with the best of them.
