EARLY 1970'S CRESTWOOD LES PAUL COPY. A TYPE OF ORANGE TOBACCO BURST IN COLOR. SEE FOR YOURSELF. I THINK A '72 OR '73. THIS THING IS A SPOT ON COPY (EXCEPT FOR THE WEIGHT), OF MY OLD '73 GOLD TOP (INCLUDING THE REDUCED HEADSTOCK ANGLE). 3 PIECE MAPLE NECK WITH FLORENTINE TYPE, 5 PIECE HEADSTOCK. ROSEWOOD FINGERBOARD WITH HIGHLY ORNATE, MOTHER OF PEARL INLAYS. ALL GOLD HARDWARE (OBVIOUSLY WORN), WITH SEALED GOLD TUNERS. HIGHLY ORNATE MOTHER OF PEARL INLAYS ON HEADSTOCK AND BELOW STOP TAILPEICE. BONE COLORED BINDINGS ON HEADSTOCK, NECK AND TOP OF BODY. BODY APPEARS TO BE OF CHERRY WOOD, WITH A THIN LAMANENT OF MAPLE TOP (APPROX. 1/8 INCH). PICK GUARD REMOVED FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE. GREAT SOUNDING GUITAR, HAS BEEN MY MAIN GUITAR SINCE THE MID 80'S. I BELIEVE THIS IS THE TYPE OF GUITAR THAT HAD THE GIBSON COMPANY UP IN ARMS, WITH ITS NEARLY IDENTICAL DIMENSIONS TO THE LES PAUL MODEL OF THE DAY. THIS GUITAR WAS MADE IN JAPAN AND I LOVE IT. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING CLOSE TO THIS GUITAR, AND WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED IN SEEING/FINDING OUT MORE ABOUT THESE GUITARS.

Just found out from the music store that sold these in my area that they were distributed by C. Bruno Co. but I don't see them in their website...

I HAVEN\'T HAD TO REPLACE A THING ON THIS GUITAR. EXCEPT FOR SOME MINOR NECK STRAIGHTENING ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO, IT HAS PERFORMED FLAWLESSLY!! I BOUGHT THIS GUITAR OFF OF RICK CRAIG, FROM THE BAND HALLOWEEN. THEY WERE FROM THE DETROIT AREA, AND USED TO PLAY IN THE SURROUNDING STATES AS WELL. THIS WAS HIS MAIN BACK-UP GUITAR TO HIS FIRST FLYING V, UNTIL OBTAINING HIS SECOND V. AS FAR AS I KNOW, THESE CRESTWOODS WERE SOLD THROUGH A STORE HERE IN THE DETROIT AREA. I HAVEN\'T FOUND ANY LINKS FOR THE SERIAL #\'S BUT YOU COULD CHECK OUT guitar site.com FOR SOME POSSIBLE LEADS THOUGH.I WOULD LOVE TO SEE SOME PICS OF YOUR AXE.....LET ME KNOW

I have this same guitar, I replaced pickups with gibson 57 classic(neck position) & 57 classic plus (bridge). It also is my main guitar. Paid $150.00 from original owner who only used it at home. Yeah, a steal! but what great workmanship on a copy

Is there a link where I can check serial#? The music store that sold my crestwood to the original owner thought that "Kaman" was the parent co. In addition to replacing the pickups, that were ok but no way as great sounding as the 57 classics, i've also had to replace all the pots.

Something else very cool about this guitar is that under a black light, it turns a beautiful color of green!
