1963 Epiphone Crestwood Custom

Almost as soon as you pick this one up it becomes clear that 1963 was a very good year for guitars. This Crestwood Custom is a dream. Great old wood: one piece mahogany body, one piece mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard. It was also the last year for this cool symmetrical body and pick guard that is a favorite around here. The neck lands in that perfect zone between medium and chunky. You can't argue with a set of these vintage mini- humbuckers either. They have all the bite you could ever want. They also have a nice top and bottom end for when you're playing on the cleaner side of things. The icing on the cake: nice and resonant and weighs only 6.7 lbs! As is the case with a lot Epiphones with this tailpiece, the wood block can rattle a little bit, but once you plug in you'll never notice it. It sound nice unplugged but with these mini-buckers you won't be able to resist cranking up your amp. Another cool little tid-bit on this one is the amazing serial number: 1-2-3-4-5-2!


Cosmetic/Physical Condition:

This classic remains in very good condition. It has normal wear marks for a guitar of this vintage but it has been well taken care of and is clean. You will find small nicks, scratches, some random dings but no large or irregular damage. The cherry finish has faded to varying amounts throughout the guitar.

Repairs & Mods:

No cracks, no breaks, no repairs. At some point the bridge was replaced with a roller type bridge. The tailpiece is missing the vibrato bar.

Feel & Playability:

They really knew how to carve a neck back then! It has a generous 1-11/16 width at the nut with nice and round neck profile. Fills your hand nicely without being gigantic like a 50s neck can be. It a pleasure to play. Straight neck, good action. The original frets are on the low side with a little wear but the guitar still plays true. Thumbs up.
