I beleive that unless you guys have tried one recently you shouldn't comment. I have an old TB 2000. Because I loved the sound of my music Man so much more for R&B it sat in a closet idle till I decided to try my hand at R&R ( wife says mid age crisis). I wasn't getting the "sound" that I wanted from my Music Man. I remembered my old Travis, got it out of the closet , new set of strings and presto change-o just the sound "I" was looking for. Comments?
