This is us, our surroundings, and some of our facility in downtown Detroit, Michigan.

Clay Avenue Guitar Company was started when Jesse Hopkins along with his father Larry, outgrew Jesse's basement workshop where they'd been building guitars under the name J & L since 2010. 

After settling on a space in downtown Detroit, a name change was in order to acknowledge where the new guitars would be made. And on a cold bright day in January, they set out to make the finest guitars to ever come out of this city.
