Sustain: The Travis Bean Guitar Movie tells how one great idea changed guitar history. Born of the motorcycle and hot rod culture of Burbank California in the early 1970s the Travis Bean guitar was fused from gear head sensibility and rock and roll creativity. The innovative aluminum neck that Travis Bean invented created a guitar with a tone and a story that sustains forever. When it was new, the Travis Bean guitar complimented a variety of musical greats from The Rolling Stones and The Grateful Dead to Heart. Rediscovered after percolating in the underground through the early '80s Steve Albini, jazz virtuoso Stanley Jordan, and Sonic Youth picked up and amplified the Travis Bean Guitar Story. Sustain tracks this musical instrument’s lasting sensation through stories shared by Travis Bean, his team of guitar builders, and the musicians who play the guitars.
