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.
