Product Description

The Epiphone 50th Anniversary 1962 Crestwood Custom Electric Guitar is a unique instrument from Epiphone’s past that provides a historically correct Crestwood profile made from mahogany. The mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with pearloid oval inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a comfortable 1960s SlimTaper. The 1962 Crestwood Custom guitar is especially eye catching with a butterfly-shaped clear pickguard with a vintage style foil ‘E’.

The Epiphone Crestwood Custom also features Epiphone Alinco Classic mini-humbuckers along with Epiphone’s top-of-the-line electronics including TopHat controls with metal inserts. Tuning is easy and accurate thanks to Wilkinson vintage style tuners with tulip buttons and a 14:1 ratio. The Crestwood comes with Epiphone’s LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and a Tremotone tremolo. The 1962 Crestwood Custom includes a period correct case and a 1962 Collection Certificate of Authenticity.

Original vintage Crestwoods are extremely rare and go for high dollars on the vintage market. If you can find one! This is a great opportunity to own one at an incredible price!

Great Reproduction
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I owned an original as my first Electric Guitar in 1962. Unfortunately I no longer own, so once I saw that Epiphone was re-issuing these I had to have one or two. I am satisfied with the Guitar. Originally I thought that Epiphone was only going to re-issue a quantity of 1962. Is Epiphone issuing more?. This is my second purchase.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Made very well, I had no issues with one I received. Finish was perfect. The Tremolo was different than original. This one has a spring and my original just used tension. The re-issue has a Screw on the Tremolo holding it to the body. On my original it did not have one. The shear pin in the tremolo kept breaking on the original so the tech drilled a hold and put a screw in. This kept the shear pin from breaking. so the re-issue has this modification..
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Playing the original I always did like the wide neck. Fits my hand very well. Most players I talked to think it is just too wide.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Very sharp, crisp on Bridge pickup, nice blues tone on Neck.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish was perfect
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Price on Original was around $300 and the reissue at around $500.00. I think the price for the re-issue was in line.
How was the action out of the box?
Action is too high. Needs to be set up. I don't think I ever got a guitar out of the box set the was I like. But it is close and playable as is.
