The original owner, Jim Robinson, accidentally scratched the clear finish and decided to refinish the bass in white. Being unhappy with thevresults he restored it tonthe original koa finish. The bass was purchased new around 1980 at a local music store for approximately $770"00. The guitar was later traded at another local music store, where I purchased it for $300.00.
Here it is, May 2014' and I still have my Bean bass. Haven't played it in a couple of years. Thought of selling it, but haven't the heart to part with it yet. Maybe one day. That's it, nothing interesting to add.
Music: (musical influences / inspirations)
No particular influences, and not inspired by any one musician. I believe something can le learned from all musicians and music styles.
Gear: (amps, pedals, etc)
Still have the old Travis Bean TB 2000 bass with light guage Roto Sound strings. Sold my amp and mic.
