Travis Bean dies at 63; innovative guitar-maker
Jerry Garcia and the Rolling Stones are among the fans of Travis Bean's electric guitars, made with a solid aluminum neck and headstock. He came up with the design in a Burbank shop in the 1970s and quit making them after five years rather than compromise quality.
Guitar maker Travis Bean is shown in 1977 at the National Assn. of Music Merchants trade show.
