    Very cool. Tasteful playing.
    Are all the guitar tracks by you?
    What kind of tele is it that you have with this B-bender?

    Thanx bro!

    No, the 12 isn't me, just the straight rhythm stuff and the solos.

    Here's a pic of Nicky & the Dude (that is the name of the guitar , it's on the case, lol!), from the PRS shindig last year...

    Tanx bud, just a simple thing for a simple tune. Barnburning stuff just wouldn't fit on this one. But the bender has been getting some use, did a few other tracks with it that came out nice.....

    Hey Andy, thanx for the listen! A bud bought it and didn't bond with it. I loved it right off, even tho I swapped out the back pcup for an Area hot T. I'm a big Clarence White fan, I've wanted a bender since I was a kid. You never see these things up my way....and with a Bigsby too? How could I pass it up?

    It sounds nice. Well done. Great phrasing, playing and tone.

    Thanx man! And yeah, that would be Sasquatch in the background. That shot is from a video I did with a band (Sturla) a few years back. A buddy of mine Pshopped the Squatch in there and I thought it was funny, so there it is...lol...

    Sounds good! I only ever played one and got on with it straight away, but a lot of wood missing. Tried a hipshot but couldn't get on with the side-move action. A local luthier did a version with an internal hole from strap button to behind the bridge. No routing, and the only visible part on the back was a plate the size of a postage stamp, below the bridge. I saw it on a Squier demo model but the B string was broken, and never subsequently found which luthier did it, and never saw another. The best B-bender lines are the ones you can't do any other way.

    Hey, thanx for the listen! :)

    This one has a lot of wood missing too, it's the old school Parsons/White bender with the longer throw on it. It's not really built for speed, great for the sweeping bends. This other one you mention sounds like the Joe Glaser benders, maybe? Gibson has a model with one of his benders in it, looks like a LP special (single cut w 2 P90's) with a tele pick guard. Like to try one....
