A LETTER FROM LYMAN GUITAR

First and foremost, thank you for giving us the opportunity to share our love for craftsmanship, community, and guitars with you. Since 2021 Summer NAMM, we have gained relationships with amazing people who we now call family. We took your input and feedback and sprouted an even better standard and quality. We are Lyman Guitar - named after a small farm town in South Carolina, the fellowship of a mighty community, expertise of our colleagues, and support from our humbling village. Lyman Guitar is an homage to our town. We will never forget the endless support that our people and new family members along the way have given to us. Lyman Guitar would have never made it this far without you. Our story is yours. This is the new 2022 Catalog.

From everyday life to colors that intrigue him, the spontaneous artistry gives a custom shop guitar without the custom shop price tag. Guitars in the Art Series are lightweight (alder & basswood) and have individual personalities and stories. What piece from the Art Series will resonate with you the most?
