Guitar Building Workshop Student – Tyler Ceola
I have decided that 2015 is going to be our year to celebrate the Lichty Guitars’ Family! Our concept of family is big! It stretches from all of the folks who own and play Lichty guitars and ukuleles to everyone who has taken a guitar or ukulele building workshop to folks we collaborate with (from Hawaii Music Supply to Rubner Tuners and on) and of course, to folks we love in the world of luthiery. Folks in our family are awesome !
We are beginning an adventure this week with Fretboard Journal as one of their field editors, John Thomas, comes to build his first guitar and to document the crafting of it via FJ website. With that in mind, I am kicking off this love-fest by spotlighting folks who have taken workshops or who are our luthier friends.
The greatest gift of our Lichty Guitars’ adventure has been the extraordinary folks we have gotten to know. They are generous, talented, big-hearted – each and everyone of them. Case in point – meet Tyler Ceola.

My guitar is still playing really nicely, and I’ve really enjoyed building more guitars since the class with Jay. I have a few people playing my guitars now and it’s such a cool experience to watch people enjoy things that I’ve made. Lately I’ve been experimenting with bridges to counter the torque rotation of the strings, as well as adjustable necks to make setup extremely simple. Since the building workshop with Jay, all I think about it guitar making, and I love it!Learn more about Ceola Guitars.
