Description

It is rare even after 40+ years in this biz when one stumbles upon an Epiphone Crestwood guitar. It is also rare when you do, that it has the trem arm and the nickel bridge hasn't been robbed. Even rarer yet (is this getting old yet?) is that this model with the bat wing head stock doesn't show up in books until 1965 but this is mos def a 1964 with serial # 241XXX. What is REALLY rare is when all of those come together in a custom color Polaris White example especially in this condition. If not for a mild amount of weather checking SO very prevalent on white Gibson guitars especially, this would be called near mint! Nickel ABR-1 ... early pat # nickel covered mini humbuckers an amazing neck It measures larger than 1+9/16 but not 11/16ths either. It seriously appears to be 1+10/16(1+5/8). PLUS ... look at that Brazilian rosewood board!! Whatever it is it does not feel skimpy like a late 60s. Oh ... one last rarity ... these almost never have the original case but this one does. THE PERFECT STORM!!!

Pay Pal, Cash, Personal Check, Money Order/Cashier's check, Wire transfers or Western Union. Pay Pal and wire transfers are offered as a convenience for far away buyers and all extra expenses are the customer's responsibilty. Unless i price my guitars up with some of the really big dealers theres not enough profit in Vintage guitars to pay out 3.9% additional. If you need to pay with a credit card there is still a way though i don't take them directly .... and that is that Pay Pal will take the card and pay me through normal services. Any time that a deposit is taken for any special arrangements or "holds" it is non refundable. To have these rules work in your favor all transactions need to be completed or deposited on w/in 5 days.

Buyer pays shipping. Shipping will be determined on a case by case basis so as to include size, weight, distance, insured amount and method requested. Shipping is paid by customer both ways on any returns.

All parties buying through the mail or offsite are allowed a 48 hour approval/inspection period on ALL guitars, unless discussed otherwise, to make sure they are keeping their purchase (but not amps to keep shipping delicate amps back and forth to a minimum and not on parts either ... too many guys doing "switcharoo's" or wrecking them trying to install them, break them and then trying to send them back ... sorry ... you have to reap the behavior of so many others). Buyer pays shipping. Payments must be received within 5 working days of anything placed on HOLD. When you receive the guitar your 48 hour return includes 2 days to receive it and approve or not and you MUST contact me. WE DO STRICTLY adhere to these rules. I don't mean to sound tough here but you would be amazed at the liberties taken in recent past! Thanks for your understanding and adherence. If an instument is put on hold and any special arraingements have been made like a deposit and hold followed up by another payment that is considerd a sold instrument since it has been taken off of the market for other possible buyers. Its not fair to us to hold it off the market and then decide against it so make sure to ask ALL questions and we will be thrilled to give you an in hands description. The same poicy holds true if you have us change the guitar (like "set it up for left handed etc ...). If that kind of work is done thats on an instrument that is a done deal also. Thanks. ALL Outside the USA sales are FINAL due to extended "visits" through customs and some countries laxed attitude about shipping on time.
