TW-61 Black

Sao Paulo, Brazil (February 7, 2017) -- A classic instrument design, the TW-61 boasts an offset waist and a poplar body that gives it an elegant rocker sensibility. The maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, combined with two P-90-style pickups, a volume knob, a tone knob and 3-way selector switch, the TW-61 has one more mind bending feature: a 5-position Tone-Styler!

Colors available include Black, Sunburst, Fiesta Red, Vintage White, all with a Tortoiseshell Pickguard
