Lichty began building ukuleles when his work as a home contractor slowed down. Within a few short months he had built 7 or 8 and then had the incredible good fortune to build his first guitar in a workshop with world-renowned guitarist and guitar builder, Wayne Henderson. Lichty builds approximately 25 handcrafted instruments each year in his Tryon, NC shop. This is the second guitar he has donated to a charitable organization and it is one of the ways Lichty Guitars gives back to the community.
How does this guitar sound? Visit the Lichty Guitars website to watch a slide show of the guitar with soundtrack and watch a video as internationally acclaimed guitarist, singer, songwriter Geoff Achison graciously test-drove the guitar while on his recent US tour. Both musician and the guitar sound incredible!
A $10 ticket, only 350 sold, and all proceeds going to a great cause add up to a win/win for all who are lucky enough to buy tickets before they sell out.
