General What is your overall opinion of this product? Better than riding a DeLorean! Action is good, Finish is impeccable and true old time sound makes my choice a great one. I do gig occasionally and this one will be my primary axe since I play allot of 60's and 70's music in over 30's clubs here in southern Cali. Wish Epiphone makes more white ones with the batwing tuning head (I bought the available Cherry). Thank you AMS and Epiphone!
Tremotone has already broken...

What is your overall opinion of this product? Looks awesome, looks better than it plays. The tremotone arm, when moved down out of the way for playing, ends up jutting out over the saddles, making it difficult to palm mute the bottom couple of strings. No biggie, there are three holes in the arm, with the middle position being the factory default. I planned to just move it to the last position. Ultimately had to slide the entire arm off in order to access the nut on the bottom of the arm inside the spring, and when replacing the arm on the threaded base, the clamp broke. Cheap die cast metal. Probably not a deal-breaker. I think the screw that tightens and holds the clamp on will still hold it on, even though the clamp is now in two pieces.
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.

Your general opinion of this product. Beautiful to look at. The volume pots and 3-way selection are fighting for the same space as the trem set up (which is very lively). I'm constantly looking over the top of the trem assembly to see certain setup combinations that are hidden from view when holding the quitar normally.
Finally re-issued!

Your general opinion of this product. Came with a Certificate within a Hard Card Folder, Poster, Nut Wrench, Epiphone Bumper Sticker, Very Nice Dark Grey Case with Epiphone Logo and the Guitar. For the price I feel this is well worth it. Even though it is collector grade I plan on using. I had a 1962 Epiphone Crestwood Custom and this is really close to what the original is. The Tail Piece “E” Logo is raised, the original was flush. I could see this getting caught and come off in the future. Also on the Tail Piece the Tremolo has a Spring and the original didn’t. This could be a good revision as on the original the sheer pin is all that would hold and it used to break all the time. Last on the Tail Piece the Original did not have a Screw to hold down the tail piece but after the last pin break the tech drilled a hole in mine and put the screw in. This helped prevent further breaks. On the Butterfly Pick Guard the White part is painted on the re-issue the original was not, somehow it was permanent. The White is already scr
