I've been fortunate in my career to have met and made friends with all kind of interesting folks!
After a couple of years of brain-wracking, I've finally come up with a bender design for the old Telecaster Ashtray 3 & 6 saddle model which also fits those crazy bridges with the offset saddle screws. It's called the TELE14 and has been added to the Models page.
In March of 2015 Bowden Benders perfected an attachment to quick-change the bender's tuning from a whole step to a half step with the flip of an adjustable screw lever. It is an additional $25.00 to add it to your bender. It is especially advantageous to have it with a double set-up, as it opens up two different ranges of bender licks. If you use just one Half-Stepper on a double set-up, we recommend having it on the G string. However, a Half-Stepper on both benders expands the range to an even new level.
