We may be bias, it’s true, but we believe that few gifts can top a custom handmade acoustic guitar or handmade ukulele; for the holidays, for a birthday, for graduation, for a retirement, for an engagement or wedding gift, or to celebrate any milestone. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving! There is the awe that comes when one finds out they have just received a certificate for a handmade guitar, the pure joy of helping with the design of their custom instrument, there is that breath-taking moment when the first note is strummed and then there is the lifetime of play and enjoyment that follows.
In addition, you can give a loved one a git certificate to a workshop where they can come and work side by side with Jay to build their own guitar or ukulele!
Hi, Jay- I think you know that Terry loves his guitar and probably even more loved the experience of making it. He is practicing, working with some friends and may have a song or two under his belt soon. I don’t know that there is anything that he would have loved more than your guitar building workshop and the finished product. It made me very happy to give Terry such a perfect gift for our 20th anniversary and his retirement. – Stacey Schager, wife of Terry Schager who took the summer 2013 guitar building workshop
Jay, we’ve got the UKE!! It’s absolutely beautiful! I wish I could play it – but we’ll hear it soon enough when we give to Justin!! Thanks again for making this a priority, and helping us create a beautiful, an unforgettable gift for our son! - Robin and Mark Goldstein
I just picked up my Custom acoustic guitar from Lichty Guitars and I’m speechless – the guitar is beyond my expectations. It’s the perfect guitar and a joy to play! Thank you so much to my grandparents for the anticipatory graduation gift! – Greg Hendler
Jay, thank you so much for getting the guitar to us so quickly. Daniel has been enjoying it and thinks it’s the coolest thing. Thank you again for providing such a beautiful, unique and useful gift. I know we will enjoy it for many years to come. - Adair Bard who purchased this, one of our favorite guitars, for her husband Daniel.
