Travis Bean Designs TB 500JG


As Kevin from TBD/EGC states: "These 500s are by far the most aggressive sound instruments we make and personally, I’ve ever heard". We can attest.  Just an incredible instrument.

This Travis Bean Designs TB500JG Generation 1, in vintage white with 3 TB500 white single coils and OBEL sports a Full T6061-T651 wrought aluminum neck with 24.75 scale, rosewood fretboard with 12 inch fretboard radius, Mother of pearl dot inlays, and Schaller tuners. Comes with Proprietary 3 ply pickguard material.

The 3 on/off mini switches for the pickups work as follows: up is single coil on. Down is off. This allows for any pickup configuration you’d like.

Master volume and 2 tone controls with OBEL. Most parts are sourced from the original companies (Ohmite, PEC, CTS) and everything else is made in-house.

Marc McElwee (VP), who designed this (and all TBs except the Wedge, that was all Travis), passed on the methods used to make everything including the very unusual pickups.

Features T6061-T6 aluminum neck, Grover Tuners, and full spec electronics. This comes with all the cables you need to make the OBEL work and they are made by Rattle Snake cables. 

Hard shell case is included.

Get yer Jerry Garcia / Grateful dead and much, much more on with this super versatile guitar.
