GRETSCH
TRAVELING WILBURYS: TW-200
1988

Gretsch Traveling Wilburys TW-200 electric guitar, 1 pu, white sparkle, circa 1988 - original box and CD This is a Gretsch Traveling Wilburys TW-200 semi-hollow body, single pickup, single cutaway, electric guitar. It was made circa 1988. The Traveling Wilbury models were in production from 1988 -1992. These guitar were designed to be an homage to the Danelectro's of the 1950s and 60s. It has a white sparkle finish with Traveling Wilbury's decals and branding on the front and back. The guitar is pretty much new-old-stock (NOS). It doesn't look like it was played at all and has the original strings. It's made of masonite. So it's very light. It includes the original box, CD, guitar and packing materials (as shown.) It was made in Korea for Gretsch and signaled their return to guitar making in 1988.

GENERAL INFO/CONDITION:
This TW-200 Traveling Wilbury's electric guitar is in virtually new condition. It looks like it was never played. It 100% original. It has a modern-style adjustable bridge.

TUNERS/HEADSTOCK:
Good quality, open back, tuners; in proper working order. The B-string tuner is just slightly loose but it works fine.Description from VintageSilvertones.com

NECK:
Bolt-on, 18 frets. It has mother of pearl/plastic circular inlays for fret markers. The action is medium-fast. The neck is straight and all the electronics work properly. The frets are in excellent shape because it was not played. There's an adjustable truss rod. The fingerboard appears to be rosewood.

PICKUP:
One humbucking pickup. One tone and one volume controls. This pickup has a serious bite! If either the tone or volume control are turned down slightly the tone becomes much smoother, so I'm assuming they have a built-in roll-off feature.
