Description:   pearl white body, very rare
Believed to have been J.Garcia's, but still trying to
document. Travis indicated he only made about 10 pearl white TB1000 Artist. Evidently Garcia had five of them. Can not say enough about
this one!







Member Profile

I have loved Travis Bean's since the first time I heard Garcia play one in the 70's. Was lucky enough to purchase my pearl white Artist 1000 back in 1983 from a vintage guitar store in L.A.
Spoke to Travis several times and a great and talented guy he was. I designed and printed remakes of the Travis Bean brochures on black t shirts. If anyone would like one please let me know and I will send you one free of charge.
