The Crestwood first appeared in 1958 and it was renamed Crestwood Custom in 1959; it was Epiphone's first two-pickup solid-body electric guitar design. The Beatles used many 1960's Epiphone, Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars throughout their careers. The new Epiphone Crestwood '68 Reissue Custom returns to its roots with features that harken back to the early models including a symmetrical double-cutaway Mahogany body with two Epiphone PRO Mini Humbucker pickups, three on a side reduced sized Kalamazoo headstock with Epiphone Bikini badge and ivory button Epiphone Deluxe tuning machines, and a clear butterfly pickguard with white center stripe and foil E logo. The Crestwood Custom comes equipped with a glued-in mahogany neck with a medium C profile, Indian laurel fretboard with 12" radius, 22 medium jumbo frets and Epiphone oval inlays, 2 volume and 2 tone controls with CTS potentiometers, and an Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge with Graph Tech TUSQ saddles and Tremotone vibrato tailpiece.
