Your Custom Lichty Guitar or Ukulele
… begins when you work with Jay to design the instrument of your dreams!
NC luthier Jay Lichty builds custom handmade acoustic guitars and ukuleles. No two Lichtys are alike as each custom Lichty is designed with and for the player. When you order a custom guitar Jay will learn a bit about you and your playing style and then together you will design your own guitar or ukulele ensuring the perfect fit.
While we love for folks to come by the shop to pick through wood and components for their custom Lichty, most of our customers are not from Western North Carolina. In fact, we have players from around the world who play custom Lichtys. That is why we’ve worked hard to provide all the information you need via this website to design your guitar online.
If you are interested in a custom guitar you’ll pick from over 12 models, from a couple dozen types of tonewoods and soundboards and then there are all the options! For a custom ukulele Jay will walk you through those same steps. Then you can run the numbers in our Price Estimator to get an idea of the cost.
“Nothing inspires great music more than playing an instrument you love, and one that was built just for you!” – Jay Lichty.
