We are continually reminded that we have the best customers in the world! The proud owner of this custom Brazilian Rosewood guitar is the perfect example. Justin came by the shop last spring and fell in love with the guitars we had on hand. Before he headed out that day he spent some time in the shop looking through our wood collection and listening to the tap tone of a variety of pieces. Shortly thereafter Jay and Justin began working together to design Justin’s custom Lichty guitar, using a set of Brazilian Rosewood that literally resonated with Justin.
Justin brought great design ideas to the table and Jay and he discussed each in detail. From the choice of snakewood and pearl trim details, to the selection of a master grade Italian Spruce soundboard, to the side sound port and the African Hard Ivory nut and saddle, this guitar reflects a thoughtful collaboration. It also reflects Justin’s style and vision. Throughout the design and build process Justin was wonderful to work with and his enthusiasm was contagious.
Jay, you truly have a God given talent as a luthier and it was a pleasure to not only do business with you and Corrie but also to build a friendship. I love the guitar that we designed together and I’m sure that another Lichty order will be placed in the near future! Thank you for your patience, dedication to providing excellent customer service, and passion for building gorgeous instruments. Please send my sincere thanks to Corrie for all of the great pictures along the way. I’m sure this guitar will remain a treasure in my collection for the rest of my life. Thank you for building such a gem that is an inspiration to hold and play. – Justin Whitesides
