About This Listing


For your consideration a 1977 Travis Bean TB500 with a Red finish! If you know you know! Nothing like these vintage Travis Bean guitars! Only 351 TB500 ever made! Of course this is the legendary Aluminum neck/center block guitar where the pick up mounted directly to the aluminum center block! Extremely cool and sounds unlike anything in your collection! This one has Excellent condition frets. Believe it or not it, at 8 pounds 11 ounces, its lighter than most Les Pauls! Original set of single coil pick ups! Gotta love a rosewood fingerboard, many modern aluminum neck guitars have aluminum fingerboards which feel as extremely odd. An amazing guitar from the original designer!


This guitar is all original and in very good condition. Comes with a non-original hard shell case.

1-5/8″ Brass nut. 24-3/4″ scale length.

Imron coated Aluminum neck with a depth of .82″ (1st fret) and .86″ (12th fret). Rosewood fingerboard with a 16″ radius. 22 large frets are in excellent condition.

6 saddle bridge with string thru body. Nickel tuners.

Weighs 8 pounds and 11 ounces.
