What makes a Liggett Guitar?

   When it comes to an instrument, I am obsessed with how it feels. Feel, or playability, is essential. Nothing should be ‘in your way’, you need to forget you’re holding it and play music intuitively. My electric guitars tend to be thin and lightweight, yet substantial in feel, so that they’re appropriate in the studio or for hours at a time on stage.

They need to look great, too. I am in love with exotic woods, so please don’t ask me to paint a guitar. It breaks my heart. Let’s celebrate these awesome patterns that nature gave us, and display their natural beauty. I could build a stripped down model of guitar with basic woods and sell it for less, but I’m just not interested in doing that. I want to build something incredible, and I want you to play it.

About The Luthier

  My name is Ben Liggett, and I have the best job in the world. I get to build custom guitars, and banjos, and people actually pay me to do so! It’s insane. In 2012, I received my initial training from the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix, AZ. After that, I became a full time luthier at Bishline Banjos, and have been for the last 7 years. Check out Bishline Banjos for many pictures of what I truly believe to be the best banjos in the world. Due to my work there, I have very few builds available each year.
