    So I'm looking at buying a 1965 vintage Epiphone Crestwood bass because it is dirt cheap for a vintage bass and I like collecting. Any one play one before and think it is worth it? It is $180

    I have never played one but it is almost CERTAINLY worth that tiny investment if it is anywhere near playable condition with ANY original parts

    Check for headstock break repair.

    So I went into the store to look at it. It had all of the original electronics and was officially labeled vintage, it sounded great and felt great, but someone in the store had dropped it and not told the workers so the headstock was broken. They're repairing it. If after repairs it is down to like $100 or less, I think I may buy it.
