I was surfing around a month or so ago and happened upon a luthier that was new to me: Lichty Guitars. Jay Lichty and his wife Corrie Woods are based out of North Carolina. After looking at all the gorgeous pictures, videos and sound files on their site, I was instantly hooked and wrote to Jay to tell him I wanted to place an order. At first I wanted to go with a concert size because that’s what I’m used to playing, but ended up going with something different this time… a Tenor. The woods I chose were Brazilian Rosewood back and sides with a Sinker Redwood top. It’s going to be so beautiful. And if it sounds anything like Jay and Corrie’s personalities, it’s going to be the sweetest uke I will ever own. You can check out the build progress on this uke at Jay’s site, I should have it in my hands in a few weeks and I can’t wait!
