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 6 years. Check out Bishline Banjos for many pictures what I truly believe to be some of the best banjos in the world. Due to my work there, I have very few builds available each year. Please use the contact info below if you'd like to reserve a build for 2019 while space is still available.
I am currently booked until Jan 2020, but still taking orders. A deposit of half the quoted price is required to begin your build, with the remainder to be paid upon completion. I am confident that you will fall in love with your guitar the moment you play it, so all of my instruments have a 48-hour money back policy If you aren't 100% satisfied upon receiving your instrument. Send it back and I’ll find it a new home.
