Is your Lichty being played professionally or is it for casual playing?
I play the Lichty for my own enjoyment.
How would you describe the sound?
It has the best sound of all my custom ukuleles, of which I have 3 others. The sound is very warm with good projection.
How would you describe action / playability?
The action is perfect and is one of the easiest to play ukes I’ve ever had.
How would you describe the craftsmanship & finish?
Craftsmanship is perfect. My instrument has no defects at all and the finish is gorgeous.
Any comments about reliability/durability?
I haven’t tried to run over it with my car, so I can’t comment on the durability. I believe if I treat it nicely, that it will last longer than I will.
How would you describe/rate working with Jay in the build process?
Working with Jay was the best experience that I’ve had so far with a luthier. I’ve had 3 other custom ukase built and Jay was always very quick to respond to my questions and he delivered my uke BEFORE schedule, which was a wonderful surprise.
Overall Rating: 10 out of 10
If you want a custom ukulele that will become your favorite after just one strum, get yourself a Lichty ukulele. Trust me. – Julie Strietelmeier
