History of Mass Street Music


1970s Michigan Street Music - early Mass Street Music
Mass Street Music started out as Michigan Street Music in 1978, as it was on Michigan Street in Lawrence. Owner Jim Baggett (L) and Rick Dishinger (R), together with Greg Smith, founded the store, crafting and repairing acoustic instruments. The growing demands of the business led Jim to purchase the larger building of 14th and Massachusetts Street where we are today. After doing some heavy-duty cleaning in the new building, Mass Street Music officially opened its doors with the new name in 1983.

Leo Posch Guitars at Mass Street Music


We're very proud to be carrying the exceptional instruments of Kansas luthier and independent guitar builder Leo Posch! He only builds about 20 guitars in one year's time, crafting each with a respect for and in-depth knowledge of vintage 20s, 30s and 40s instruments. Posch hand selects the woods for his guitars, preferring a stiffer wood over the simply pristine every time. He works closely with the sources for his woods, who often will keep an eye out for him, knowing his preferences. He uses hide glue construction on his guitars which dries harder and is another incremental step that leads to improved resonance.
