About Travis Bean Guitars

Travis Bean was one of the first guitar makers designing metal neck guitars and basses from 1974 to mid-1979. All Travis Beans were handmade in a warehouse in the San Fernando Valley. Bean or McElwee tested guitar and bass before it left the factory. Jerry Garcia has be the most significant musician to play the guitars. Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones played a Travis short scale bass. Other notable artists who played Travis Bean’s include: Joe Perry of AeroSmith, Keith Levene of Public Image Limited (P.I.L.), Greg Lake (Emerson, Lake and Palmer), Gary Shider of Funkadelic/Parliament, Roger Fisher of Heart, Teenie Hodges of the Al Green band, and Brian Robertson of Thin Lizzy.

Travis Bean began numbering with #10. At #1001, the Artist and the Standard each began its own numbering Production for early serial number models began at #10, however prototypes of certain designs have lower numbers and actual signatures etched in the neck by Bean himself, such as ITEM we have for sale below.
