The Lichty Dreadnought Guitar – a Blend of Old and New
Sloped or square-shouldered, deep-bodied, familiar and comfortable. The Lichty dreadnought-style guitar is a contemporary interpretation of the most popular steel string guitar design in the world. Jay blends the best of the old with the new by honoring the classic guitar-building traditions while infusing his intuitive luthier style into the building process.
While a classic Rosewood or Mahogany D-series type model is an option, our extensive selection of premium domestic and exotic woods makes the variety of custom designs and options almost endless. The quality of the dreadnought sound is full, balanced and powerful with deep bass registers.
Jay’s craftsmanship, chronicled by Corrie’s website photos of the construction process, has produced a work of stunning visual and acoustic art. And oh yes, did I say I love this guitar? It has instantly become that “Old Friend” that players talk and sing about, and I’m inspired to play it daily. – Andy Haynes, NC, custom Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought guitar
