Hello everyone,

I'm selling my TB 2000 Reissue Bass - Serial #2, as well as my TB4000 Wedge Project Bass - Serial #21.

First some info about the Reissue:
It's purple with dot inlays, has some light pick wear on the body, and slight tarnish/discoloration on the neck around frets 2 through 7 - but I think some Nevr Dull
will restore the shine. The bass was never gigged live, just used in the studio for about 6 months. I purchased it from a guy named Pete in California who purchased it from Travis himself. The back of the bass is signed by Travis and came with a Travis Bean gig bag.

Now about the TB4000 Wedge Project...
This is the one sold on eBay last year with the semi-circles cut out of the body. I paid a lot of money for it but I thought I would be able to restore it or pay to have someone restore it.

I read here in the old posts that this poor Wedge was originally damaged in a ceiling collapse and it appears that about 1/4 inch of the body was sanded/planed off the bottom part of the body. Sadly, that doesn't explain why the semi-circles were cut out of both sides...

The body has 3 major splits in it - one runs from the pickup selector to the input, as well as 2 splits between the 2 pickups. I used some wood glue to keep the body together. A good luthier should be able to buy a slab of Koa and cut a nice new body for it...which is what I originally planned on having someone do.

The wiring from the pickups to the pots need to be replaced. If you're interested in the bass I'll tell you how I botched the original wiring....

The pickups, pots, and bridge all seem to be original. The pickup knobs aren't but are Gibson Speed knobs like the original. The brass nut does need to be reglued to the neck. The neck and frets are in great shape for a bass that is so old.

I'm giving you guys the heads up here before I put them up on eBay. I'm going to buy a digital camera tomorrow and should have pics by Friday. I'll probably list them both on ebay by Saturday unless I find takers here. I'd love to find a home for these basses with a fellow TB lover/player and I hate to part with them (I used to own Linc's 4000 Wedge and regretted selling it back to him the second I dropped it off!) but I just got married and have a baby on the way, so...I have to raise some cash.

Drop me a line at john at eligen dot com if you are interested.
