Luthier Workshop at Lichty Guitars
Luthier Jay Lichty built his first instrument, a ukulele, in 2009. Since that time he has been a full-time luthier and as of this writing, he has just put strings on over 230 instruments (he has crafted about 100 guitars and 100 ukes). You can read more of the story here. As you might imagine, you can find Jay most anytime kicking up dust out in the shop.
Please note: We welcome visitors to our luthier workshopshop and do so – by appointment only. Please call ahead.
When visiting the shop, you never know what project Jay may have on the workbench or who may be visiting. Perhaps he is opening and stacking the latest shipment of guitar tonewood; is building a new jig; carving bracing for a custom ukulele or, if you are really lucky, he is putting the strings on the latest custom guitar and playing the first tune. That is what makes a visit to our luthier shop so fun.
