Summary: In the cult of Travis Bean, everyone knows the TB2000 bass. The fantastic top carves, and the very elegant shape designed by Marc McElwee. Over the past 16 years, Kevin Burkett has slowly tracked down the 7 bodies from the final revision of the bass. It’s a front-loading version that shares the same neck with the TB500 Bass. Once Kevin had the bodies, he drafted them and built the core of the bass working from the original body. There were only 7 of these front-loading bodies built, and 2 or 3 are all that were made available to the public as the rest of the bodies were already claimed. This is an extremely rare version of this bass, and it plays and sounds fantastic.

Body: Koa with a gloss black finish.

Neck: Aluminum, 33.25” scale length, 1.68” nut width, 20 frets, pearl dot inlays.

Pickups/Hardware: Two Travis Bean humbucking pickups, Gotoh tuning keys, Travis Bean 4-saddle bridge, front-loading body, 2x volume/2x tone controls/3-way pickup selector.

Cosmetics: This bass is brand new.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Weight: 9.75 lbs.

Case: This bass ships in the original Fender hard-shell case, professionally packaged, and fully insured.
