    An eye-catching guitar with dual humbuckers and Tremotone tremolo.

    The 50th Anniversary "1962" Crestwood Custom SB332 Outfit has a historically correct Crestwood profile made from mahogany with a beautiful finish. The mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with pearloid oval inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a 1960s SlipTaper™. The pickguard is especially eye catching with a butterfly-shaped clear guard with a vintage style foil "E". Original vintage Crestwoods are extremely rare and go for as much a $6,000 on the vintage market. If you can find one!

    The Crestwood Custom also features Epiphone Alinco Classic mini-humbuckers along with Epiphone's top-of-the-line electronics including TopHat controls with metal inserts. Tuning is easy and accurate thanks to Wilkinson™ vintage style tuners with "tulip" buttons and a 14:1 ratio. The Crestwood comes with Epiphone's time-tested LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and a Tremotone™ tremolo. The "1962" Crestwood Custom SB332 Outfit includes a period correct case and a 1962 Collection Certificate of Authenticity.

    All three of these Epiphone classics will be issued in limited quantities of 1,962 pieces.

    All of the "1962" Collection instruments were designed by Epiphone luthiers who worked from the best examples of vintage originals found in Epiphone's own collection in Nashville. Measure for measure, the "1962" Collection recreates the look, sound, and feel of the originals first produced at the Gibson & Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1962, the same factory that produced the Les Paul Standard, the SG, and the 335. Includes case.

        Comments about Epiphone 50th Ann. "1962" Crestwood Custom Reissue Electric Guitar:

        I didn't think there were any 62 Crestwood reissues left.With only 1962 of them produced and released in Sept 2012,I thought they were pretty much gone. Then they showed up at MF,and after a six week backorder,it finally arrived.
        This is one sweet guitar.Slightly retro looking,with a beautiful red finish.
        Mine arrived flawless.Fit and finish are perfect,with no rough edge to the frets and a pretty much perfect paint job.Setup was perfect out of the box.Intonation and action are spot on.This one was put together with an obvious eye toward quality.
        The guitar is super lightweight.It's well balanced,and feels great on the shoulder.
        The mini humbuckers give me all the versatility I need.With the standard Gibson pickup selector and and dual Vol and tone controls,I can go from twangy country to thick blues tones at the flick of a switch.
        The Tremotone is a little stiff for my taste,but it works well,and doesn't cause any tuning problems if used with restraint.
        The period correct case is a nice touch.It's very plush,and the guitar fits perfectly.
        I was a little dissapointed that Epiphone didn't assign it a serial # 01-1962,since they made a big deal out of the limited production run,although they did add a 1962 Collection Certificate of Authenticity to the package.
        Epiphone did a great job with this one.If your looking for an investment instrument this is an affordable alternative to a "custom shop special".If you're just looking for a great playing,great sounding guitar,then it's that and more.
