I got my Posch 000-12 fret (#24)a few months back. What an amazing guitar! Leo really knows how to get that vintage tone from his instruments. At Winfield I played a Posch D18 style guitar belonging to Mike Horan and was equally impressed.
Hope to see you around someday for some picking and to see your Posch.
Very happy to have you as a friend.
Maybe give you a roundhouse kick
next time I see you .I did not get to jam
with you last last june at Steve,s Kamp.
Maybe next time
take good care
Yeah, I had a pesky stroke (now 18 months ago!) but am pretty much recovered. Still some residual minor effects on flatpicking and fingerstyle, but it would be unreasonable to expect to recover 40 years of effort in a single year or two. Just practice, practice, practice that that stupid metronome. Missed Kamp this year, but will certainly be there next. Thanks for asking! Keep in touch, guy!
I am still loving my Posch. I think it is really starting to open up as it gets played. It has got me back into a little fingerpicking as it works well for that style as well as flatpicking. Do you have any pickups in yours? I play plugged in occasionally at a local coffeehouse and two Sundays a month in church. Leo put a McIntyre feather transducer pickup and a Crown mini condensor mic in mine. I play it through a DTar Solstice blender/preamp and have been really pleased with the amplified sound.
Will you be at Kamp this year? I will miss it but am planning on 2010.
Today I dropped off a set of 60's era Brazilian at Leos for a sunburst D42. It was raining buckets but it was fun to pick out a top and plan details. I found the wood on Ebay from a repair guy who bought it from Martin in 1980 when they sold off some of their wood inventory. I will let you know when it is ready to check out. Will you be at Winfield this year?
Thanks for the kind words about my guitar. Leo was not happy about the nut and so made a new one as well as dressed the frets. I am looking forward to getting it back. Did Leo show you my Brazilian for the new guitar?
I will be at Winfield next month. We always camp in the Walnut Grove overflow area across the highway. I will try to get in touch with you then.
I visited Leo yesterday & saw your new guitar. The body is done & it's gorgeous!!! If it's going to be a SB D42, I can't imagine how great it'll look. And the sound -- Leo's guitars are getting better & better. When I got mine (# 1), I couldn't imagine how anything could sound better, but he keeps learning more about his craft & they keep getting better.
Make sure to let me know when you go to Leo's again (maybe to pick up the new geetar). I'll make it a point to be there, too. I'd really like to meet you (& play your guitar). I'll bring # 1, too.

"Hey Craig. Thanks for the kind comment. The credit for this version should really go To Steve Kaufman who's arrangement it is. Good luck with your bluegrass studies, it's wonderful music and great fun to play. I look forward to…"
"Thanks Mike. I have to prove to myself that I can play the material as written but once I've done that I start to allow myself some leeway to have fun and drop in my own bits. There's not too much space to do that in SK's version of…"
