Recently, TB1000S #1288 has been listed on eBay. This may not be what it appears to be.
http://cgi.ebay.com/1978-.....ories&hash=item4cf1fa12a2

Some of you might remember a TB1000S that was listed many times missing a serial number and 3-piece body. Here is original posting on the forum:
http://www.travisbeanguit.....fuseaction/forum.view.htm

I have original photo from that listing here:
http://www.travisbeanguit.....s/misc/travisbean3604.JPG

The listing #1288 has different pickup rings than the photo above, but the grain pattern on the body matches. Also, has the same 'incorrect' bridge as the photo above. This Bean now appears to have new pickguard or NOS pickguard. Serial on the headstock... appears new.

I've shown inside cavity photos of this neck to others (images sent from previous owner). The neck appears to be original (based on mill marks), and the body appears to be original, but did not have any serials (body or neck) which is odd. This guitar appears to be altered further by forging a serial number on the headstock.

Thanks

This guitar is relisted.. yet again. Seller now excludes the serial number (in the description) as well as the altered headstock photo.

Another misleading point relating to the description "Pots Date 1978". This may be true, but the pots have been added later (including orange drop caps)... so not original to the guitar.

Looking back, I did receive photos from the guitar store that was originally selling this guitar. They provided some photos.. including the electronics cavity. I received these photos in July 2009. Here is the photo of the electronics cavity:

As you can see the wiring, pots, switch and caps are different than what is shown in the current auction.

Here are additional photos when I initially asked about this guitar that was missing the serial number
