Dagan checks out a Limited Edition reissue of Epiphone’s first electric solid body, celebrating Epiphone’s 150th Anniversary!
The Crestwood first appeared in 1958 and it was renamed Crestwood Custom in 1959; it was Epiphone's first two-pickup solid body electric guitar design!
The latest limited edition Crestwood Custom celebrates Epiphone’s 150th anniversary. It features an asymmetrical solid mahogany double-cutaway body that gives players unhindered upper fret access, a mahogany neck with a comfortable 60s SlimTaper D profile, and an Indian laurel fretboard with oval inlays.
The headstock is the popular “Batwing” style, with Wilkinson six on a plate inline tuners with metal buttons. The electronics feature a pair of made-in-the USA Gibson™ Mini Humbuckers that are wired to CTS potentiometers and a Switchcraft 3-way toggle switch and 1/4" output jack. An Epiphone Tremotone vibrato tailpiece gives you extra expressive capabilities. The included 150th Anniversary Historic Hardshell Case features an Epiphone 150th Anniversary logo.
