International Guitar Month Doug Lancio
There are so many musicians whose work and talents make good music great. Doug Lancio is one of these.
Though he may not be as well known as some of the folks he teams up, Doug Lancio is a brilliant guitarist and Nashville producer whose skills and sheer talent fuel the powerful vibe both in the studio and on stage of such greats as John Hiatt, Patty Griffin, Nancy Griffin and many others.
Because he is a behind the scenes kind of guy it's hard to catch Doug in the spotlight but countless Nashville musicians look to Doug to contribute to their tracks and their...

M Music and Musicians Magazine
Everyone once in a while we come across something that really shines and that feels like a great fit to share with our visitors. M Music and Musicians Magazine fits that bill.
We discovered this fairly new print magazine when we they reviewed a solo album by friend, talented musician and Lichty Guitar player, Jody Porter of Fountains of Wayne. A turn of the pages and it looked pretty good... but really, we are very busy and who has time to do much more than just flip through?
We were fortunate to get some back issues, however, and rather than joining the dust...

Jody Porter's solo album, Close to the Sun, Reviewed in M Music and Musicians Mag
Jody plays a Handmade Honduran Mahogany Acoustic Guitar built by none other than Jay Lichty, of Lichty Guitars. During a recent visit to our shop Jody played each one we had on hand. What a treat!

Doug Lancio's Acoustic Guitar, a Pau Ferro OM Lichty Guitar
Doug Lancio is a brilliant guitarist. John Hiatt, Patty Griffin and many others would agree, since he is their lead guitarist.
Doug stopped by the Meet the Luthier event in Charleston (after playing an incredible John Hiatt show at The Charleston Music Hall) and played each Lichty Guitar we had on hand. Hearing him play on stage was great. Hearing him play a Lichty up close was beyond words. Doug laid claim to a Lichty Pau Ferro OM. We look forward to hearing great things from Doug and that guitar – from the road and from his Nashville...
Indian Rosewood Curly Redwood OM Guitar
This guitar is one of our favorites! Stunning to look at and the sound is so full, from the high-end to the low-end. It's built from Indian Rosewood (back and sides) and Curly Redwood (top).
Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller
We had the extreme pleasure last night of connecting back up with Doug Lancio, friend and amazing lead guitarist currently on tour with Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller, of seeing the show, and of visiting back stage with one and all.
The show was way beyond our wildest expectations! Buddy Miller is a legend for good reason. Amazing guitarist / vocals that blow your mind / super presence on stage and with the audience. Patty and her band joined him for part of his set. What a cool way to blend the two talents together and to open a great show.
