Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Mahogany Neck, Indian Laurel Fingerboard, Tremotone Vibrato, and 2 Mini Humbuckers – Cherry

Cult-classic Garage Rocker with Modern Performance

The Epiphone Crestwood Custom celebrates a pioneering early electric guitar design. Back in the day, the Epiphone Crestwood Custom shared the factory floor with Gibson’s now-historic instruments at Gibson’s Kalamazoo, Michigan, factory. Like its siblings, the Epiphone Coronet and the Epiphone Wilshire, the Crestwood Custom has the soul of a garage rocker, evoking the subversive sound of bands like The 13th Floor Elevators, ? & the Mysterians, and MC5. This contemporary incarnation features all the hallmarks of the original design: a symmetrical double-cutaway mahogany body, a set mahogany neck, two-vintage-voiced mini humbuckers, and a slick Tremotone vibrato tailpiece. Still, this is a fully modern machine with top-notch appointments, including high-quality CTS pots, a Graph Tech nut and saddles, a reduced-size Kalamazoo headstock with an Epiphone Bikini badge, and a lightning-fast 12-inch-radius fingerboard.

Distinctive vintage-style mini humbucker sound

Introduced on vintage Epiphone model guitars in the 1950s and 1960s, mini humbuckers have a lasting legacy. They’re particularly favored by legions of guitarists who prefer tones outside of normal humbucker or single-coil sounds. The Epiphone Crestwood Custom’s PRO mini humbuckers retain the functionality of Epiphone’s legendary mini humbuckers while giving you a bright, focused tone with a distinctive top-end chime and midrange bite. They’re the perfect complement to the Epiphone Crestwood Custom’s undeniable rock ’n’ roll attitude.

Cozy playability from a glued-in, medium “C”-shaped neck

The Epiphone Crestwood Custom offers the perfect combination of an old-school, hand-filling medium “C”-shaped neck and a modern-feeling, 12-inch-radius Indian laurel fingerboard. We’ve found this electric guitar to be a rhythm player’s delight. Whether you’re banging out a punk progression or whipping out tight chord stabs, the Crestwood Custom will feel like an extension of your body. And while this isn’t the most shred-friendly axe on the planet, the Crestwood Custom’s double-cut solidbody makes accessing all of its 22 medium-jumbo frets effortless. To top it off, this vintage-style guitar’s glued-in neck construction enables it to sustain with no end.

Head-turning looks from period-correct aesthetics

Strapping on the Crestwood Custom will make you look like the coolest guitarist on your scene. This idiosyncratic, head-turning axe starts with an early-model, symmetrical double-cutaway shape, but it doesn’t stop there. Its distinctively shaped pickguard is emblazoned with an eye-catching stylized “E” logo, and its reduced-size Kalamazoo headstock is adorned with an impossible-to-ignore Epiphone Bikini badge. Period-correct top hat knobs and ivory tuning buttons complete this guitar’s killer look.
