Tenor Ukulele Construction
We believe there really is something magical about the combination of Brazilian rosewood and redwood for a ukulele and our customers agree. Jay is currently working on the first of two separate custom tenor ukulele orders that marry these two amazing woods.

We'll be posting the progress of the following tenor ukulele construction in the days and weeks to come. Watch magic unfold ...

.. Like many custom uke buyers, I wanted something different in my tenor uke. I sent Jay some sound clips of ukes I liked and I have to say he delivered. I enjoy picking/strumming, jazz and Hawaiian, and wanted an instrument that gave balance and clarity among all strings. This uke has it, big time. I was amazed at how clean the uke could sound; my wife instantly heard the difference, noting how distinctive it was compared...

To understand how excited we are about this latest Lichty Ukulele you'll need to know a bit of the background that led up to an instrument that has knocked our socks off.
