The 50th Anniversary “1962” Crestwood Custom SB332 Outfit has a historically correct Crestwood profile made from mahogany with a beautiful Cherry color 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 as USD $6,000 on the vintage market. If you can find one!

      The 2012 re-issue is even harder to find.
      I bought the last Cherry finish one that zzounds had over the telephone because they said there were no more coming. They had two more in white finish coming and that would be it. I should have bought a white one as well.
      The 1960’s slim taper neck is not as thin as my 1966 Worn Cherry Wilshire re-issue (my favorite) but is no problem.
      I will likely be adding a roller bridge.
      Other than that, everything about my ’62 Crestwood is flawless.
      The Cherry finish looks appetizing, like a piece of candy.
      So pretty that I fear giving it a blemish. I play my Wilshire as the go to ax.
      That keeps me from getting fingerprints on the extremely rare Epiphone 1962 Crestwood Custom.
