2014 Lichty Ukulele Raffle!
The 2014 Lichty raffle ukulele was crafted by Jay Lichty at his Tryon, North Carolina shop. Every instrument Jay builds is one-of-a-kind, and this year’s raffle is no exception.
Much like LEAF’s mission, this unique ukulele connects “wood cultures” by combining three pieces from diverse backgrounds. All three create a harmonious community of sound, finding new purpose through hand-crafted unity.
The list price for this ukulele is $4,135. Tickets are $10 a piece with 100% of proceeds going towards music and arts education programming locally and globally.
This reclaimed masterpiece includes “mountain cabin oak” forming the back and sides, a Sinker Cedar soundboard, and neck carved from an antique mahogany bedpost.
