The Crestwood was Epiphone's first solid-body electric guitar. Originally appearing in 1958, a modified version took its place just a year later - the Crestwood Custom. Fast-forward to 2020, and Epiphone has brought this retro rocker back to life with all of its vintage charm still intact - including the dazzling double-cutaway body design!

Key features include two Epiphone PRO Mini Humbuckers, the distinctive 'Tremotone' tailpiece, a high-quality Graph Tech NuBone nut and a reduced-sized Kalamazoo headstock with striking "Bikini" badge detail.

Rock-Solid Construction

Boasting an all-Mahogany construction, the Crestwood Custom projects a warm and full-bodied sound that's rich in lows and sizzling with mid-range, while the glued-in neck joint guarantees long, piano-like sustain. The medium "C"-shaped Mahogany neck is comfortable for contemporary and traditional players alike, with a smooth Indian Laurel fingerboard and 22 'Medium Jumbo' frets offering a controllable feel under the fingers.

Epiphone PRO Mini Humbuckers

The Crestwood Custom packs a potent pickup pairing comprising two Epiphone PRO Mini Humbuckers. Delivering punchy, mid-heavy tones that are rich in harmonic content, these versatile hum-cancelling pickups are suitable for a range of musical styles - from soulful blues all the way up to modern punk and indie!

Genuine CTS Pots

Independent volume and tone controls for each pickup make on-the-fly sonic adjustments easy, and allow you to attain a wide range of sounds. The potentiometers are made by industry-leading electronics company CTS to ensure a lifetime of reliable use. They'll never let you down onstage!

Vintage-Style Hardware

Epiphone could have easily fitted its reimagined Crestwood Custom with modern appointments, but they wanted to retain the spirit of the original by installing vintage-style hardware; for that truly nostalgic look. Sporting the iconic Tremotone tailpiece for tasteful vibrato, ivory-button Epiphone Deluxe tuners and a clear butterfly pickguard with white centre stripe and foil "E" logo - this 21st Century Crestwood Custom doesn't forget any of its essential late '50s roots.

The LockTone bridge is perhaps the only contemporary enhancement, featuring high-quality Graph Tech TUSQ saddles. With these high-quality pieces of hardware, you can expect rock-solid tuning stability and fast, stress-free string changes thanks to the bridge's practical locking design.
