Dates of manufacture:
The D68 SW was a Washburn Dreadnought with a solid spruce top (bound with maple) with rosewood back and sides, bound with maple/rosewood. It had a mahogany neck (with rosewood fingerboard inlaid with pearl dots). The bridge was ebony. The headstock has the Washburn logo inlaid in abalone into a rosewood veneer. Tuners were diecast chrome with pearloid plastic buttons. It came in natural finish only. Production started in the mid 1980s but by 1994 Washburn had stopped making this model.
This was a reasonably expensive guitar: it would have cost you over $1000 to buy one new. According to the Washburn archives, the list price was $1500 for D-68S in 1993.
|1985||$800||new||This was a great instrument tonally, appointments, and workmanship. It was a wonderful guitar to play. Balanced, clear. and rich. If you have one, don't let it go. I did, and I've been kicking myself ever since. Been looking for another one ever since!|
