1990's Gretsch TW 300 - Traveling Wilburys Guitar
For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1990's Gretsch TW 300 Traveling Wilburys Guitar.
This guitar is a lovely little player; lightweight with a great feeling neck, single humbucker, and tremolo.
At the behest of George Harrison, a floundering Gretsch was commissioned to build a promotional instrument for the Harrison/Dylan/Orbison/Lynn/Petty project. These guitars were made in Korea for Gretsch and signaled their return to guitar making in 1988 and designed to pay homage to the Danelectro's of the 1950s and 60s, and were in production from 1988-1992. It has a white sparkle finish with Traveling Wilbury's graphics (no two are alike) on the front and an autograph of band members stamped on the back. It's made of masonite so it's very light. Production numbers are unknown but TWs were offered in as many as 6 configurations and were priced accordingly (TW-100; TW-200; TW-300; TW-500; TW-600). Variances in models included pickups and hardware.
The TW-300 is the model used by Harrison in the Handle with Care video.
