"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.

    ā€œEā€ Bend Cut

    Our 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”.
