I’m definitely enjoying my beautiful new guitar. I take it everywhere and it’s such a pleasure to play. The size of the neck is perfect, and I’m glad we took the time to get it just right. – Jeanette Chapman

My Lichty guitar is absolutely incredible! It feels beautiful to play and sounds so balanced, so phenomenal. Honestly it is the coolest guitar I have ever seen or played. I wanted this guitar to represent who I am and what I bring to the table as a musician. Between Jay’s craftsmanship and Clark’s artwork – man they nailed it! – Mike Gossin, Gloriana
