Washburn D68 SW CE or some combination of letters
« on: May 02, 2018, 04:30:48 PM »
Long time listener, first time poster.  I've been working to bring a D68 "something" back to life. Was in pretty rough shape when I got it and its slowly getting better.  Thought I would post what I've got as the information on this model seems pretty cloudy at best.  From the S/N I think it is from 1994.  The info on the neck block identifies it as a D68SW. It is also a single cutaway/acoustic-electric (CE). I've read postings there are no acoustic-electric versions of the D68 and there are no solid wood cutaway acoustic electric versions of this model.  I'm still somewhat unsure of what I have.  All I know is I really like the way it plays & sounds.  Here are pictures (I hope this works).  If not I'll try again.

I don't know where you saw those postings, they were made from 1992 -1994 great instruments I had the D-68S(W) 1984 no electronics nor cutaway so what you have is exactly what it says you have a nice looking D-68SW CE not sure what more I can add other then to say thanks for sharing the pictures always nice to see someone else's Washies. ship
