Description 

Few guitars capture the vibe of the esoteric and early version Epiphone slab body electrics like this Krishna Jain Crestwood replica. Using a combination of templates from an original 1959 Epiphone Coronet and various late 50s Gibson electrics, this mahogany-bodied doublecut delivers all of the great midrange punch we expect in this format, but with a more dialed-in tone by way of some great custom spec pickups.

Essentially handmade in his Boston area shop, Krishna took an old-school approach to this build, and sourced some great tonewood in the process. The one-piece Honduran Mahogany body has great sustain and resonance paired with a full C carve neck that no doubt is playing a role in its liveliness. Outfitted with a Vintage Vibe custom wound mini humbucker in the neck and a Curtis novak Firebird pickup in the bridge, plugged in tone is chimey and open with great clarity and a lean but present midrange attack. Clean tones in the neck position have a nice touch of compression and bloom with great dynamics, and the Novak Firebird has a great chirp that simply sings with an overdrive or fuzz.

Lightly aged with a great broken in feel, this custom-built Krishna Jain Crestwood is a sure-fire option for a player looking for that LP special style electric with a unique aesthetic and high-grade components.

Priced with Mono M80 bag.
