This is the same Crestwood Astral II that Jack White played in the early White Stripes, just with a different brand name on the headstock (a common practice in Japan at the time, one model issued by different stores with their choice of names) and a slightly different headstock shape. It's a fully hollow, bolt neck guitar, with pickups that are quite a bit like P90s in sound. 2 volumes, 2 tone controls, a 3 way switch and a functional tremolo with the arm complete the controls. 

It's been gone over and a pot replaced that had died. Otherwise everything is stock. Setup is perfect for me (with a light touch) but could be adjusted for a heavier hand or slide. If you hit the strings hard, you'll get some buzzing on the high E string above the 15th fret. Action is nice and low. 

There are a few minor dings but condition is overall excellent. There's also a tiny crack in the plastic covering of the neck pickup in the corner-you can see it on the close up of the body. Frets are typical tiny Japanese ones with some wear but work well. Comes in a padded Fender gib bag and I can pack it very well.
