"No need to put your guitar under the knife"

The home of the original non-defacing string bender, Bowden B Benders designs and builds benders that fit on the tailpiece of your own guitar without modification, including benders for many rare types of tailpieces that no other companies have available. Remember when you order, delivery may take a few days and may take as much as a few weeks, depending on the availability of the parts, the time it takes to hand-machine them and the number of orders ahead of yours. Use the Contact form or the email address in your Order Confirmation to inquire about the approximate delivery time for your type of bender.
