Probably because only 162 were made over four years. I bet a few were converted to standard ES-335s' date=' as well.[/quote']


162! That's a wonderfully exact number, pohatu!


Where did you find out about it? I'd like to know more about them too!


The only reference I could find stated that - and I post the quote in full(!) "The Crest. Produced only in 1970 and in Rosewood. Very rare." (photo)


That's it. No dimensions, nada.


Bear in mind that my ref. book has been wrong as often as it's been right so I'm sure your 4-year production is correct. My book also dates from 1976 so there was perhaps a limited run in the interim.


A curio, certainly.
