Travis Bean #53

by Benjamin Brockway

This one came into the shop after the non-original fretless fingerboard had popped off from an amatuer repair / glue job. Because of the poor fit of the old board, it was decided that the neck needed a new one. After sifting through my collection of hardwoods a 50+ year old ultra dense rosewood species floorboard was chosen.


Customer wanted to keep it fretless. I also made a brass nut and added classic clay side dots. The top of the fingerboard was left plain to keep things simple and showcase the beauty of the wood. Strung up with D'Addario Chromes 50-70-85-105.
