Over the weekend of July 17-July 19th in San Francisco East Bay, TB-2000 SHORT SCALE Serial # 233 was stolen. Standard neck, Koa body, knobs replaced with old RCA type skirted knobs.
I'll post a couple of pix when I figure out how to do it.
Also stolen was my 1963 Gibson SJN acoustic guitar,(I bought it brand new) modified by Alembic in 1973 replacing Gibson peghead with Zebra wood laminated head. Alembic logo inlaid in mother of pearl.

Needless to say. I'm devastated! Any assistance will be appreciated.

Hello arseaem

Horrible news here! To upload photos, you need to be logged in, then point your browser here:
http://www.travisbeanguit.....n/photoGallery.upload.htm

Supply the appropriate information (serial, model, etc) then click 'Browse'. Select the file from your computer and then click 'Upload'.

Images cannot exceed 4MB in filesize, and there is a short period before it's 'live'. If you have trouble, you can email me the photos, and I can get them up.

Thanks!

Bummer! My condolences ... and some encouragement ... my TB basses were stolen a long time ago from our van parked in a hollywood recording studio parking lot ... one of them was advertised in the paper for sale 6 1/2 years later. I took my 'victim report' to the police, an officer escorted me to the place, I took my bass back right there. I hope you filed a police report and keep the paperwork. Good luck! Peggy

Peggy thank you for your encouragement! I do feel that he (#233) will return to me eventually. I did file a report.
I see regularly discussions about the "short scale" basses. Yes, there were 12 made. After #233 was stolen, it took several months to think about playing again. My whole TB experience has been with that short scale.Finding another was not a reality so I bought #104. MUCH heavier! But more important is the difference in tone and touch. Given the unique Bean sustain generated by the metal strings coupling to metal saddle blocks and a brass nut at the other end, the loop is completed by the aluminum neck. All resonant devices have a primary resonant frequency determined by many factors, not the least of which are mass and (wave)length. The short scale has a shorter (wave)length than the full scale TB2000. Therefore it has an inherent resonance DIFFERENT than the resonace of the full scale. The one issue with short scales is the bottom (E) string is not long enough to get a full quarter-wave harmonic.
I am trying to find out the original cap values for the TB2000, as the pickup/tone control seems phase shifted when both pickups are selected. Capacitors do change value over time, which then changes the tone control rollover frequency.
I miss #233! He can be heard in all his glory on the New Riders of the Purple Sage "LIVE NEW YEARS EVE 2006" on the tune "Dirty Business". Keep your eyes open for #233. He shall return!
Thank you.
Bob M.
