Hi Everyone, I'm very new to the Bean world, been admiring them for years, but only bit the bullet and bought one a few weeks ago (a TB1000s). I was wondering if anyone knows the rhyme or reason behind the serial numbers? Apologies if I have overlooked this info elsewhere, but it just doesn't seem to make sense as you have Artists with serials going up to 1300+ yet they only made 750 (odd) and Standards going up to 1700 yet only 1400 (odd) were made, is it possible that these figures are off? I thought initially that the serial indicated the number of that particular model made, but as I stated above with the numbers we have of each model produced this can't be right. Then I thought that maybe it indicated the number in relation to total Bean's made, but you have multiple guitars with the same serial etc, so that can't be right. I guess this isn't really important but it has been something that I have been trying to work out, anyone's insight would be greta.

Hello tb1000s#937

Thanks for writing, and congrats on picking up a Bean!

This article is a great read and goes into the serial logic:
http://www.travisbeanguit.....7c2a79382e4a32260ae1aa2b0

Here is a quote from it that answers your question about TB1000S/A serial numbers:
"The run of serial numbers on Standards and Artists began with 21 and continued till 1000. At that point the lines were split and each continued with 1001, 1002, etc."

Hope this helps!

Thanks Hank, I had read that article before but must have skimmed the serial number part, it all makes sense now. Thanks again for your help!

does anyone know of ANY two Beans with the same serial #? Like an artist and a standard? I assume bass guitars are completely separate so the would have a matching serial # to a guitar. Do I even have that correct?
Thanks!
