Guitar Building Workshop – Day 6 – John Thomas, Fretboard Journal
In just 5 1/2 days John Thomas, field editor of Fretboard Journal, built his first guitar here at Lichty Guitars. Not only did he break all records, we all had an amazing time together. It is accurate to say that John was not the only one who was learning and that guitar building was not the only topic. So goes the magic that happens by the luthier’s bench.
John captured the experience so beautifully via daily posts to Fretboard Journal. Read his entries here:

And our follow up –
Just moments after initial strings went on (but only briefly for a test-drive) John made these recordings. Wow!
