This guy is living out his dream - good for him! Make sure you click the link at the end of the article to his website - both his guitars and ukes are beautiful.

I'm proud to say that I'm in the queue for a Lichty ukulele. Met Jay about a month ago in his shop in Tryon. Absolutely beautiful and amazing work he does, I felt so lucky to have found him in my home state. We spent a good three hours going over my ideas and choices and came up with what I think will be a terrific tenor uke. I planned to tell all you UU folks about it when he actually got a start on it. He is also, just incidentally, a really nice guy, a real artisan and craftsman. Oh, you can bet I'm excited!:drool:

CTurner - it would be awesome if you shared progress pics once he got started (and of course a sound sample when complete)!
