  • Description: This Travis Bean TB-1000S is in good shape, in addition to a set-up, we performed a "grind and polish" on the frets, not to worry, there is still plenty of fret material remaining. Featuring a Magnolia body and the signature machined aluminum neck finished in black.The aluminum neck/center section runs through the instrument body, with the Travis Bean pickups and bridge directly mounted to the aluminum. This unique design set the benchmark for maximum sustain. Luminaries like Garcia, to the Stones to Slash all are "Bean Alumni". This TB-1000S serial number 1530, has seen the front lines of the rock & roll battlefield, with patina to prove it. An area of pick wear above and between the pickups, and some "belt rash" on the back, numerous "marks and dings" about the body, this is the "real deal" no factory "RelicĀ®" recreation. Own a unique and rare "Bean" for a grand less than one with a pretty face.
