Celebrating a century and a half of tireless innovation, Epiphone unveils the new 150th Anniversary Crestwood Custom, and it's a rockin' vintage-inspired guitar. A tribute to their first-ever solid-body guitar to have two pickups, the Crestwood Custom returns to its roots with many classic features, including double-cutaways, a solid mahogany body, and a pair of mini humbuckers. If you've been searching for a retro-cool guitar that plays great and sounds even better, look no further than Epiphone's Crestwood Custom.
Starting with a solid mahogany body, the Crestwood Custom projects a rich resonance with deep lows, punchy mids, and truckloads of sustain. Its '60s SlimTaper "D" shaped neck feels nice and comfortable for a wide range of playing styles, and its 12" laurel fingerboard plays with a buttery-smooth response. Guitarists will also appreciate the numerous aesthetic appointments that give it plenty of old-school mojo, including its California Coral finish, Tremotone tailpiece, and pearloid oval inlays.
Players will love the 150th Anniversary Crestwood Custom's Gibson USA Mini Humbuckers that give it a premium sound for rock, blues, alternative, and everything in between. Select the neck pickup, and this Epi will churn out a rich, warm tone that's perfect for rhythm playing. Crank the bridge pickup and kick on your favorite dirt pedal, and you'll unleash a hot, searing wail that's perfect for 'in your face' lead work. Additionally, Epiphone upgraded this guitar's electronics with CTS pots, ensuring a premium internal signal path.
The Epiphone 150th Anniversary Crestwood Custom ships in a hardshell case for extra security and protection. Plus, it's one of only 420 units built worldwide. Please reach out today if you've been searching for a sleek new Epiphone that pays homage to the golden years of rock 'n' roll!
