Bill Leverty and Frank Hannon discuss C.R. Alsip Guitars

Welcome to C.R. Alsip Guitars

C.R. Alsip LLC was founded by Jake Willoughby in January of 2012 with the goal of building the finest guitars on this earth right here in the “Good Ol’ USA” at reasonable price points. This is our passion.

Where did the name C.R. Alsip Guitars came from?

C.R. Alsip was Jake’s mother's maiden name. She was a caring and loving person that left a great impact on whomever she met. Connie Rae Alsip-Willoughby was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January of 2011. She battled cancer for a little over a year. On February 28th 2012 she lost that battle.

Jake’s mission is to see that Connie’s name is carried on and known worldwide through C.R. Alsip guitars. Every C.R. Alsip guitar has heart & soul, blood, sweat & tears built into it.

We want our guitars to play great and ooze the sweetest tone your ears have ever heard


Sustain is a key element to guitar players liking or disliking a guitar. C.R. Alsip guitars dove right in and started working on ideas to increase sustain but not over increase it. Then our very own SES (Sustain Enhancement System ~ Patent Pending) was born.

It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a professional musician, you can hear the difference in our guitars. C.R. Alsip Guitars - "The New Vintage" C.R. Alsip guitars take the features that every player desires up a level and can build anything your ears desire. With everything from maple to bubinga, we offer any option and combination your imagination can dream. Painted, tinted, or even airbrushed, C.R. Alsip is the new one stop shop for the ultimate guitarist.
