Stage 1

I could have become, an art critic, a seller of pies at the station, a football player, or at worst an astronaut.

But, for some reason, at the age of 20 I passionately wanted to play electric guitar. In the 90’s being able to buy a guitar was unrealistic, but I could not give up on a dream. I had to go the hard way – to try and make one on my own. The era of the Internet was not there yet, so the process of cognition and creation lasted almost a year and a half. My job working in a watch factory helped me achieve this dream with a remarkable result. My copy of the Yamaha RGX312 did not differ from the original even in color.
It was so exciting to make a guitar of my own that it became clear – the process of creating the guitar was even more enjoyable than even the playing of it.
And so it happened – I became a guitar maker.

Stage 2

Since the beginning of my creative career, 6-7 years passed before I had the ability and the desire to make instruments with my own logo. Finding a good name is a painful process. My friend, guitarist Sergei Trukhanovich helped me decide on one. I was making him a guitar and Sergei suggested using the name of his band for the logo – Sam Gray. I liked the idea, and that’s how the first signature instrument appeared.
Later, after rebranding, I once again used this name in the budget line of guitars for stores. To date, Sam Gray is no longer used.

Stage 3

The experience gained over the years opens the way for new searches for creativity. Simply copying the products of famous brands may provide a living, but it didn’t speak to me as a vocation. You start to have the strength and courage to make yourself stand out. And at one moment, another small personal change took place – a new guitar model Starline was born with an already established family logo Poznysh.

Stage 4

With the advent of the Guitar Master Festival “Guitarstroy”, there was an opportunity to prove myself from a creative point of view. I like to work in the framework of a given topic and at the same time have the right to improvise. Thus, new ideas and unexpected solutions are born and a self-recognizable style is developed. Now it no longer matters what guitar is requested – in the end they will all be in the Poznysh Guitars style.
