Hey Kellar,
I've had my Posch since January, it arrive on the 18th, and it's Leo's #18, some kink of selestial alingment thing going on. It's a great box, light, powerfull, and great tone.

Kellar,

Thanks for sending me the note. I've wanted to know for some time now who the lucky person was who owned MY guitar (that's a joke ).

Some years ago, when Leo agreed to make my guitar, I told him I wanted a 000-12 fret w/brazilian rosewood & a cutaway. After we priced the braz, I elected to go with Madagascar RW, which was much less expensive. Also, Leo said, since this was his first guitar, he'd much prefer not attempting a cutaway, so I went without one.

I watched Leo make your guitar & played it some just before he sent it to you. I really feel in love with it. I love my guitar (I'm sure you've seen the pics on his website), but your's is what I would have had if I'da had my druthers.

As an aside, I currently have in my possession (through some strange gyrations). It's probably the finest new dread I've ever played.

Photos of the new guitar are at:

Kellar,

It's cool to run across another one of Leo's clients. I'm blessed to own #002 and #009, both of them incredible guitars! Who is the lefty player in your band? Be sure and tell him about the lefty forum that I own, LeftyFrets.net! It's a cool hangout for lefty players like us.

Regards,

Gary

I was at Kamp in '06 and again this year. 2009 looks "iffy" right now, unless this economy turns around a LOT between now and then! I'm a residential designer who designs houses, and my biz is way off right now.

Tell Steve to look up Dale at DHR Music (dhrmusic.com). Dale plays like Steve and orders lefty guitars that are strung righty!

Hey Kellar,

I haven't heard from or about you recently. How's that Posch doing? Are you still as excited about it as you were when it was new? My 000 just keeps getting better & better. Leo certainly knows what he's doing, doesn't he? By the way, have you seen this thread in the UMGF?

Kellar,

I'm glad to hear that you're still enjoying your Posch. They are wonderful instruments.

I do not have a pick-up in mine. I play mostly in small jams. Also, I have a local musical friend, who also plays guitar & mandolin. We play quite a bit in nursing homes (2-3X each months). I don't need amplification for any place I play.

As for kamp, I probably won't be attending kamp anymore. I have parkinsons disease & it's just getting too difficult for me to get around (& to get to & from) at kamp . This is a MAJOR bummer for me, as kamp has been for me, for many years, the most fun I have all year long. I will REALLY miss it. Gettin' old is a real pain.

Have you attended kamp before? If you go in 2010, you'll have to tell me all about it, so I can live a little bit vicariously through you.

Best,

Roger

Easy Solution To a Common Acoustic/Electric String Problem

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string  is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More

FGM DGBE

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
