The Travis Bean 1000 Artist (TB1000A) is the flagship of the new Travis Bean Designs line of instruments. Its classically symmetrical body is both aesthetically pleasing as well as functional and balanced. The TB1000A is a 6-string semi-hollow body electric guitar with a 25.5 inch scale and 12 inch radius on the fretboard. The entire rear pan (headstock, neck and the rear half of the body) is machined from a solid billet of 7075-T651 aluminum; while the top half of the body is constructed of various woods (see below for available varieties and finishes) and features a full three-dimensional carve.
The TB1000A comes standard with a rosewood fretboard and mother of pearl block inlays, a fully adjustable Travis Bean bridge, your choice of knobs (see below for options) and Sperzel locking tuners. The TB1000A features 2 signature balance Travis Bean humbucking pickups (constructed utilizing ALNICO 5 magnets) with independent volume and tone controls for each pickup and a 3-way selector switch. This peak of class in the new Travis Bean line will be delivered to you in an SKB Indestructible flight case.
