Description: Please see attached photos

As Kurt so eloquently noted, … "Ok Mr. Peabody, let's dial the Wayback Machine to the" … early 90's and the Guitar Show at Valley Forge … ...

Mr. Admin, I'm stunned at how great my old photos look in the gallery! I actually remember taking them, because I was so excited to finally see a Bean at this annual show!

So, can anyone identify this Bean?

For you Gibson enthusiasts, can someone please share the knowledge … what are we looking at … models … vintage … maybe a blurb about the pickups …

Another General Observation:
Switch knobs: Some are white … some are black … was it random … any thoughts or theories

Switch Knob Poll:

1. Wedge # 29 - White
2. UTB White

Also, with regard to missing pickguards… or as some of you folks refer to them as scratch guards … why didn't the Wedge come with one …

Finally, in my last long winded observation thread, I had asked if allen wrenches came with the guitar … Kurt indicated, "in the little compartment of the case are two little ziplock bags, one with the keys for the case, and the other with three allen keys …" … and Vincent indicated, "warrantee cards, instructions and a set of keys. two of my Beans came with leather embossed Travis Bean name plates" …. So, did they come with them … maybe one folks that are original owners can reply … I'd think they came with them …. my other request was for a photo of a HB pickup … found it ..very cool .. especially after reading all of the Fender items …

MOST TRAVIS BEAN GUITARS AND BASSES CAME WITH BRASS NUTS. KNOBS AND SWITCH HANDLES WERE VARIOUS TYPES (CLEAR,GOLD,BLACK,ETC) AND ASSEMBLY OF THESE ITEMS DEPENDED ON WHAT WAS IN STOCK AND ON HAND.
