While we think the very best gift of all for a ukulele player is a custom ukulele built by NC luthier Jay Lichty … there are plenty of other great gift ideas in this year’s gift guide. Have fun and play on!
A visit to a luthier shop – We recently had some folks drive up from Georgia to visit the shop here at Lichty Guitars. What made the visit really cool was the fact that the husband had not told his wife, a very talented musician, where they were going. When they pulled in our drive she had no clue what was going on. It was a fun visit for us and she played most every uke we had on hand, as well as some guitars. What a great gift idea!
Here is a great line-up of ideas from our friend Julie Strietelmeier over at Ukulele Review:
