Thank you Bill for inspiring such a special instrument! A few words from Bill …
Thank you for another fantastic experience and exquisite instrument – the Kīkū. Again you’ve exceeded expectations. It was a lot of fun collaborating with you on this project for this unique and new style of instrument. From the first mention of it during out visit last May, through the many discussions on various aspects of the design, to the final completion of this distinctive, splendid instrument, it was a pleasure working with you. I am very proud to own another Lichty masterpiece as well as the very first Kīkū. – Bill Witmer
