Jay currently builds concert, tenor and baritone ukuleles. While the majority of Lichty instruments are built for custom orders, this is the page where you will find a limited selection of currently available handmade ukuleles for sale. What is really special about these “non-custom” instruments is that Jay worked in the shop building each with whatever combination of woods and designs he felt personally inspired to craft. There are no “standard Lichty models” to choose from. The results are always heirloom quality instruments that are stunning visually and acoustically. You could be playing one of these beauties in just a few days! Feel free to call Jay (828-817-1460) or to email him if you have any questions. See currently available guitars at the Handmade Acoustic Guitars for Sale page.

While you can rarely find a used Lichty Guitar or Ukulele on the market, these special ukuleles has only been played a few times and are now up for sale. We are making these available on our website to help out one of our favorite customers. These custom instruments were crafted as a part of a special multi-instrument project. The buyer wanted a series of instruments, each with his favorite combination of woods – Ziricote and Carpathian Spruce. In other words – Jay built a matching collection. Our friend Dan, who ordered these custom ukuleles, is so totally in love with several of the other custom Lichty’s he owns that he has played this one very little. He’d like for them to be out in the world and being enjoyed and played.
Get in touch if you’d like to talk to Jay about these instruments.
He might just give you a great deal on the pair!
