Comments: This is the PERFECT guitar. I love to 'snap' my strings and can make my artists sound like a pedal steel. The alnico pickups are sensational. The sustain and tone is far superior to any Les paul I have played. The flat radius is a perfect feel and my bass player said it best: "holy smokes, this guitar basically plays itself". I suppose it's like driving a high end sports car. I prefer the thicker body and the beautiful contour of the artist. It seems to add to the sustain. At under 5k these guitars are the best bargain in the vintage market. There has been nothing like it before or since. Even my Velenos don't come close.

Comments: My dad gave me this when I was 10. It is in perfect condition with case. Since I don't play it, it has sat in it's case since then, only my brother used it and the amp a few times to hear it's sound/tone. It sounds amazing.

Comments: The Travis Bean guitar is unbelievable. My TB1000A is extremely loud. It was made to ROCK! The tone is incredible and the response is phenomenal. The one and only draw back is the weight. Other than that, it plays like no other.
