I'm just curious if anyone can answer this.Back in the early 80's when I started playing the lady who taught me to play had a short scale TB2000(not sure if the short scale was that model)but she had met Travis and he built that bass for her because a long scale was too big for her.She told me that there was only 3 of those built,2 for Bill Wyman and the one she had.Can anybody confirm or deny this?

Hello

Was this in Minnesota or Wisconsin?

Wyman did own two short scale basses (#941 and #942).

Thanks!

This was in Wisconsin,just a little north of Milwaukee.I lost touch with the lady who had this one so I don't know if she still has it.I wanted to know if I was lucky enough to have played such a rare instrument,even though I was just a kid at the time!

i forget when, where and how but i came across someone a couple years ago claiming to have one of the tb2000 short scales. he was unwilling to part with it. I think I remember Kevin from EGC telling me there were only three of them made.

walked past Sticky Fingers last week and considered trying to steal the poor short scale TB stuck under glass inside but was convinced it might not be a good idea during the lunch rush. maybe next time.
