After drooling over Travis Beans for a long time but never having the cash, I'm ordering one of these right now: All-aluminum, including the fretboard. Frets are standard steel. These are getting played by some cool bands, including Melvins, Shellac, Sunn O)) and a bunch of others. Once I saw one in person I had to get one. Even the nicest photos don't compare to how they look in person. Check out the photos on the company's myspace page. They also do some crazy custom work. I've seen aluminum SGs, jazzmasters, tele's and RDs made by them. Anyone else have a chance to play one? I'm betting they will be quite collectible a few years down the road.
