Make: Travis Bean
Price: € 5695.00
Travis Bean made his guitars from 1974 to 1979. In total 755 Artist models were produced. His design was visionary in anchoring the strings to a single piece of aluminium that formed the neck, pickup housing and bridge mounting. The innovation however carried a hefty price tag. When you could buy a new Les Paul Custom for just over $500 the TB1000A left you with only $5 from a whopping $1200. This beauty is from June 1976.
Unfortunately it's just too heavy for me to gig so I've decided to offer it for sale to someone with a stronger back.
Other than a few minor chips it's as it left Sun Valley in the 70's.The body is natural koa. The pots, caps, jack etc are original and have never been de-soldered. Knob and strap buttons are replacement but the originals are supplied. Light fret wear. Original case. 3 digit serial number.
