To celebrate a successful first year in business, Lichty Guitars, in collaboration with Frank and Amy Beeson, is hosting an evening of entertainment: Guitarists in the Round in Saluda on October 29.

When a new business starts up in these tough economic times folks mainly just hold their breath. Ill give it 2-3 months, they might mutter over coffee at the local diner. When local home contractor Jay Lichty shifted from high-end home building to high-end acoustic guitar building, its hard to say just what people thought. Now, one year into the new endeavor, Lichty is building a national reputation for his one-of-a-kind guitars and ukuleles.
