Leo the Luthier

Both of my Grandpas played music.
Herman Posch was a fiddler and harmonica player.
Charles Osburn played mandolin and was a big fan of Bill Monroe.
Charles was also an independent mechanic who worked in the garage, back of his house.

I started learning guitar at about 14 and since it was a cheap thing, of course, it needed work.
Since I liked to take things apart and put them back together I would mess around with it
to figure out how to make it better.
When I started playing banjo I "worked" on it too.
I built my first banjo with a Liberty pot and a big chunk of mahogany that a co-worker just gave me.
That was in 1980.

Repairing stringed instruments was my main focus for many years and
I've worked on some great instruments and some horrible ones.
I made several banjos and many banjo necks from 1980 to2005
and had the thought of building a guitar as a possibility in the back of my head
but I didn't have the gumption to try it until a customer was talking to me one day.
Roger was telling me about some of the problems he was having with his guitars
and how he didn't care for one thing or another in the new guitars available.
That was when I offered to make him just the instrument he was longing for.
Before I finished Roger's guitar I had more orders for new guitars!
Now my primary focus is building new custom guitars for clients both near and far.

Being a good listener, I love to take a client's wishes, ideas and needs
and apply them to their instrument, whether it be one they already have
or one we are going to make.
