For sale: White TB1000 Artist

I have for sale my pearl white Travis Bean Artist with serial number 1296. The original pearl white colour has discoloured somewhat into a more beige-like white, but aside from that the guitar is in absolute mint condition. Bought new in 1978 by my father, I have played this guitar on and off for about 5 years, but for the last 10 years it has been standing on a stand in my living room. As I hardly play it anymore, I have decided to sell it. The Imron coating on the back of the neck is flawless except for a 1 by 2 mm. chip near the 14-th fret. The rosewood board and frets look just like new. The body has no major dents or scratches, and the same applies for all the hardware. Please email me at “heteren@tiscali.nl” for pictures and offers (I am willing to ship world-wide if the buyer pays for the shipping costs). Starting from November 13, I will have some pictures available on my web site: www.stonesinreview.tiscaliweb.nl.

Best,
Mathijs

Re: For sale: White TB1000 Artist

I would highly suggest keeping your eyes on Ebay. Also, if you are interested in learning more about beans... and possibly find guys selling them, check out these sites:

http://www.travisbeanguitars.com
http://www.travisbean.com

Prices vary... usually a bean sells for $800-$1000+ on ebay. You always hear about the guys who picked one up for $200, etc... but that is rare.

I have a Travis Bean with number 924. Can anybody tell me if my guitar is worth anything, and what year it is made in

Re: travis bean

Check out this fan page for Travis Bean info
http://www.lexiconoclast.com/bean/index.html
Also check out the Guitar Auctions on Ebay - there usually are one or two listed
I dont follow the Guitars but the Basses usually go for around $1500
List yours on Ebay with a high minimum - that way you can withdraw but still find out the value of it
it in the open marketplace.
