Part Lutherie – Part Marketing – Lichty Guitars Presents at GAL
Every three years luthiers from across the states and across the world gather in Tacoma, Washington for several days of education, inspiration and community at the Guild of American Luthiers’ Convention. We are looking forward to presenting together at the upcoming convention. Here are the details:
Sunday, July 23, 9:00am – Lecture: Making Variety and Customization Work in a Small Shop
Jay Lichty and Corrie Woods
Why does the phone keep ringing with people wanting these crazy, one-off models? Join Jay Lichty and Corrie Woods of Lichty Guitars as they share tips and techniques for creating multiple models and styles of guitars and ukuleles. Learn why that works for them and how, through Corrie’s unique style of marketing, they go about finding them homes.
“The original great and glorious festival of lutherie, often copied but never duplicated, the Guild of American Luthiers Convention/Exhibition is legendary and highly anticipated in the lutherie community. It’s another avenue the Guild uses to bring together luthiers from everywhere, of all specialties and skill levels, seasoned pros and part-timers, in a spirit of cooperation and camaraderie.”
When? July 19th-23rd
