Acoustic Guitar Building Workshop at Tryon Arts and Crafts
Coming up soon … Jay will be teaching a small group acoustic guitar building workshop at Tryon Arts and Crafts. Held for ten consecutive days from April 19th to April 29th, 2012 four participants will each build a guitar from start to finish.
Jay built his first guitar under the guidance of renowned Virginia luthier Wayne Henderson while attending a workshop conducted at Tryon Arts and Crafts. He has been a full-time luthier since that time and has built over fifty guitars and thirty ukuleles in the Tryon, NC Lichty Guitars’ shop. While Jay teaches one-on-one workshops here at the shop, he’ll be coming back to Tryon Arts and Crafts as teacher rather than student for the small group acoustic guitar building workshop in April, 2012.
Over the course of ten days Jay will instruct participants as they work through the process of building their own traditional-style dreadnought guitar. They will begin with boards of mahogany and spruce and end with strings on and tunes being played.
▪ Participation for this workshop is limited to four students.
▪ The cost, including materials, is $1,800
▪ Workshop runs April 19th through April 29th, 2012. Approx hours: 8:30 to 5:00 each day, though extended hours are to be expected.
▪ Contact Lichty Guitars at 828-817-1460 or Tryon Arts and Crafts for more information
