Crestwood Review By Tim Moudry:
Crestwood Guitars are designed and Imported to the United States By LPD Music out of Madison Heights, Michigan. LPD has contracted a luthier company in China to build the guitars to their specs. Crestwoods have been in production since the 1972, That is 40 years of production. The production line includes Acoustic Guitars, Electric guitars, A style Mandolins & F Style Mandolins, Banjos, Bass Guitars, also some Latin instruments Bajo Sexto and Bajo Requinto’s. They also have a line of childrens instruments called Darling Divas. The 36 inch Acoustic kit DDPKG02 (Steel String) and DDPKG03 (Nylon String) are for children up to about 8 years of age. The DDPKG12 is a 39 inch guitar and is geared for children 9-14.
Crestwood Guitars are those kind of guitars that every guitar player needs one. It plays very well but the price point is such that you don’t care that it gets beat-up. Keep your more expensive guitar put up. But have your crestwood sitting in the corner ready to play at any time.
My Philosophy about learning and playing guitar is….always keep a guitar out….If you have to pull you guitar out of the closet then open the case…pull it out find your picks…you tend to not play as often. But if it is out you always see it. Also you only have 5 min? it doesn’t matter pick it up play a few chords and go. In my opinion…Playing 5-10 min a day beats an hour a week any time.
