Build Your Dream Guitar
In only ten days you can hand build the guitar you’ve always dreamed of. That’s how long a one-on-one acoustic guitar building workshop lasts at Lichty Guitars. It is an incredible, memorable, fun experience resulting in a one-of-a-kind guitar that you can take pride in playing for a lifetime.
Why Choose a Lichty Acoustic Guitar Building Workshop?
While there may be other guitar building workshops out there, we are committed to making those held at Lichty Guitars completely unique and unforgettable! Jay will be available to provide support, while allowing for as much independence as you want or need. You will be using the finest acoustic materials direct from our collection and have access to all of the tools you need to build a top-notch guitar from scratch.
Visit our main Workshops page or contact Jay for more details, including cost and availability.
January 2015 Acoustic Guitar Building Workshop
WOW! The finish is absolutely beautiful. I just held it in the light going over every inch of it. Then I put it on my lap and strummed a big open G and was stunned by the depth of resonance and tone. And for a big guitar it is light and responsive. I am blown away! Jay & Corrie, this has been an incredible experience and I cannot say thank you enough. I wish you both continued success in the building of your business. You are an inspiration! – Mark Ballard
