Built custom just for Summer NAMM 2014! The CMG Ashlee US is part of CMG's American Girl Series! She's outfitted with features that keep her natural beauty and simple features you'll wonder how you ever lived without. The pickup configuration is complimented by a treble bleed in the wiring harness. A treble bleed allows you to turn the volume down without losing the tone you get from conventional volume pots. Speaking of volume, there's only one of this baby! We've never saw the need for two volumes and two tone knobs so CMG got rid of them, keeping the design simple and easier to use. Have you ever been on stage and turned the wrong volume down at the wrong time? Yep. We have too. Not anymore. They're removing the variable. You'll also notice that the toggle is in a much easier to reach place. It also won't get in your way when you're tapping away like Eddie.... Let's face it, CMG got it right! Every guitar should hug you this nicely. When they were designing the American Ashlee, they decided to complete the design with a slim waistline. That way, the guitar gets brought in closer to the player and the player feels more comfortable with the instrument. The closer you are to your instrument, the more you'll want to hold it. You'll want to hold the American Ashlee for a very, very long time! Aside from bringing you closer to the guitar, the belly cut also adds comfort on your ribs. Older designs tend to dig into the ribcage, causing discomfort. This guitar feels great standing up or sitting down. Of course… while it's in your hands, the audience will be on their feet (no matter how you choose to stand). The Ashlee US is designed with "only what you need". You know, you just don't need two volume knobs and two tone knobs. That might have been a good idea for yesteryear, but let's face it–we've evolved as guitarists. I can't tell you how many times I've turned the wrong volume knob up and thought to myself: "Why is this even here?" If you're like me, you've grabbed the top volume knob when you were on the bridge humbucker or the bottom volume knob when you were on the neck humbucker. That won't happen on this guitar. One volume, one tone….no confusion.
