Lai Yen is one of our most talented local guitar builders. He is a graduate of the Robert Venn school of luthiery which, if you haven't heard, is one of the most highly regarded guitar making schools in the country. The fit and finish on Yens guitars is absolutely perfect - you can't ask for a higher level of craftsmanship. It's not often that I have young luthiers bring in guitars of theirs that are ready for prime time, but the Yen guitars are the exception to that rule. It also features a fairly husky neck profile that will please most vintage guitar enthusiasts. We look forward to seeing more of Mr. Lai in the future.
