Layke Guitar


The Layke guitar is a standard scale semi-acoustic guitar re-fretted with 31 frets in the first octave. It was conceived by Stuart Stevens, and created by Jerry Crosson at The Fret Workshop, Felixstowe, Suffolk.

Jerry said we pushed guitar technology to its limits; but the instrument works well and has perfect intonation.
