New and fantastic things


Hello all! I know its been quite a year for everyone, it seems there is a light at the end of the tunnel soon with all the vaccines coming out, so please keep being safe for yourself and everyone else. We are currently retooling the EGC and Travis Bean Designs websites to reflect all the new things going on. So check back soon and you'll see lots of new things.

Bolt on necks


Starting last year, we began offering bolt on necks, this has proven to be a wonderful way to let people get some of that sound, without having to go all out. There have been a host of people beginning to get in on this so I'm simply going to lay out why ours are the best. With 18 yrs of metal neck building under my belt, you can know it will be done right, adhesives, frets, tuners and all that goes into it have been refined for decades. Also one major difference is that we make our necks with a headstock angle, this makes the machining process more complicated, but if fixes the flaws with a flat headstock. It might take a bit longer to machine, but you are making a better product and that is what I'm worried with...making the nest version of whatever I'm making. These will eventually be available via the website, but for now, email and work great. Here is a list of the necks with pricing:    

25.5 scale(round F style and square F style heel) 750.00usd with all hardware + shipping

25.5 scale(60 style square heel) 750.00usd with all hardware + shipping. 

27.5 baritone conversion neck(round and square heel) 750.00usd with all hardware + shipping.

34.00 scale(round F style heel, 40 style square heel) 800.00usd with all hardware + shipping

To order, its 300.00usd down and the rest when its complete, we generally invoice through PayPal, but can take any payment.

We are taking new orders again! There is always a good bit of tweaking we can do on the instruments to personalize them to your exact taste. Also, we are updating the models, many are not listed and a good number now have permanent siblings. Any issues with emails have been resolved and I'm stoked to be back to talking with everyone and helping on the front end. As always, thank you! without all of you, this would not happen and it's been going over 18 yrs!
