Custom Cocobolo Guitar Construction, Alchemist G68
Every project that Jay works on is special and while it is pretty amazing that current custom orders will involve shipments to such far away places as Hong Kong and Germany, it is rewarding for Jay to be building a one-of-a-kind guitar for a great woman who lives in our immediate community. Patty was able to come spend some time in the shop to hand-select each component and “stunning” may be an understatement when this custom guitar gets polish and strings.

About the Lichty Alchemist Guitar …
If there was ever a guitar that could weave your notes, chords and intonations into pure gold the Alchemist just might be it. Jay headed out to the shop with the thread of a new guitar design in mind. Days later he emerged from clouds of sawdust with the first Alchemist in hand.
Features: Distinctive body lines with a OM style size, a wedge-shaped body (inspired by the innovations of Linda Manzer), extended fretboard, bound fretboard and headstock and Gotoh 510 tuners all distinguish the Alchemist.
