"Cream City" Ashlee
The Cream City Ashlee is our true take on a classic. Chris' wife, Ashlee, is from Milwaukee (known as the "Cream City"). This beauty has the looks and the tone you’re looking for - without the hefty price tag of other boutique builders. We want our guitars to be affordable for all.
Fullly BoundOur Cream City Ashlee model is fully bound on both the body and the neck.
“E” Bend CutOur lower horn is cut deeper than most single cut guitars on the market. We’ve cut the horn back below the 22nd fret. This allows you to bend a whole step on the high E String to that last “E”.
