Description:   Travis Bean TB1000S serial # 1076. Aluminum neck with Rosewood slab fret board. Three piece Koa Body. Brass nut. Schaller tuners. Serial number on neck matches the serial number under the neck pickup cavity. Guitar has had extensive modifications from its original stock condition. Neck was refretted. Body has been refinished. Seams between the body pieces appears like they may have been repaired. As you might have noticed from the photos there is only a solitary volume control. Someone did a very nice job recapping the top 1/3rd of the guitar including the area over the control cavity with a thin Koa veneer and looks professional. Original pickups have been replaced with dimarzio dp100 humbuckers. Custom made Ebony pickup surrounds were added as well. The pickup cavities and part of the aluminum neck (inside the cavities) were routed on both sides to make room for the height adjustment screws of the Dimarzios. Missing original metal pickguard. Body has two small marks underneath the refin from the missing pickguard screws. Missing original pickups and pickup screws that attached thru the rear of the body. see photos for pics of each pickup cavity and the routes into the wood and metal. Guitar shows signs of playing wear, nicks and dings on back and top of the guitar. Bridge looks to be original.
