I am interested in acquiring a Travis Bean (TB1000S) in in the future. Are there any advice you would give to someone who is acquiring their first TB?

This would be my first $1000+ guitar and I want to make sure it is right for me. How might it be possible to try out the guitar to make sure the weight and distinctive neck is right for me? I come from playing a Fender Jazzmaster.

Further, since it seems that many sales are done online, without necessarily seeing the guitar in person, are there are tips for determining the quality of the guitar? Are there any places (physical or online) which are particularly good for securing a good deal price-wise? My understanding is that for TB1000S, we are looking in the range $3000-4000 USD range.

Side question: I see that EGC and Travis Bean Designs offer the TB1000S body shape, though I am not sure what they prices are. Would you recommend those over seeking out an original Bean?
