Resources for Guitar and Ukulele Players and Builders
Lichty Guitars is celebrating tremendous success and we continually find ourselves saying, “If it weren’t for … we would not be here.”
If it weren’t for incredible customers, many of whom are coming back for their 2nd and 3rd instruments; if it weren’t for our great wood suppliers; if it weren’t for fans of Lichty Guitars referring us to others; if it weren’t for the great exposure and the inspiring resources we’ve found on the web … The list goes on and on.
With this in mind we’d like to share some of our favorite resources with you.
Note: This list is by no means comprehensive. It is just a start and while we’ll be adding to it, we invite you to send us your recommendations.
