May 2018 - New ridiculously simple installation adapter for a Double Setup for the old Telecaster 3 Barrel Saddle Tailpiece. Just slip it on the tailpiece, tighten two screws, put your strings on and within minutes you can completely change chords without moving your noting fingers. All the advantages of a B string bender and a G string bender, (the G bender now made popular by Brad Paisley). Reminder - all double benders come with swivel handle tips at no extra charge.
