    I bought a travis bean TB2000 a few years ago from the states, on arriving it was clear this bass had some serious problems. On removing the strings the nut fell off, it was shimmed with bits of brass underneath that were not attached. Wiring problems finger board coming away from the neck, the g string saddle cut to shallow. Sorted out all the issues the last was buying a new bridge saddle, kindly purchased from the "electrical guitar company" florida.
    The bass now plays great with a thunderous tone, moral is these old instruments are like old cars. You can end up buying a heap of trouble, but if you persevere you can end up with a gem.

    If a person has the extensive repair skill needed for such things or doesnt mind paying the cost of these type repairs by a expeienced professional. Fretbaord coming loose being main one of those things amatuers arent reeally qaulified to repair imo.
