Jimi Hendrix’s 1960s Epiphone Crestwood
A photo captured around 1962 shows Jimi playing a 1960s Epiphone Crestwood guitar while performing with The King Casuals.
Initially, the instrument was thought to be an Epiphone Wilshire. However, based on the block fretboard inlays and the prominent white pickguard, it is now identified as a Crestwood model.
Interestingly, it appears that the guitar was genuinely left-handed, as evidenced by the control knobs being situated on the lower side of the body in the aforementioned photo.
