I just got a TB1000A.The only unusual thing is it has a wolf head carved into the body below the bridge.Does anyone know if this was a factory thing or seen this before.Thanks,Joe

When I first saw that one on eBay I figured it was a band logo. Why anyone would want to mar such a good looking guitar is beyond me! How deep is the carving?

Its actually carved into the wood about 1/8".It doesnt look too bad but it needs color because it almost blends in.I am going to have the body refinished.It has alot of laquer splits.The main thing is it still sounds great.

I saw that on Ebay! I'd guarantee that the person who had that put there was inspired by Jerry Garcia's Wolf guitar, which he played in the years before and after playing Travis Beans. The carving on the Bean, however, isn't exactly like the Wolf inlay on Jerry's guitar. The Wolf sold at auction for about $750,000, btw!
