Bowden B Benders
Non-Defacing, Affordable String Benders For Electric and Acoustic Guitars
NOTE: There are various versions of Telecaster tailpieces that use the Hardtail plate (with only a lip on the back), and rather than using the Barrel Saddles, they use the rectangular Saddles as in the STRAT14 Quick Mount for Modern Tele Hardtail below. Then there are various styles of the rectangular Saddle pieces themselves. It does not matter what style your rectangular Saddles are as long as the Saddle Adjustment screw is centered in the Saddle. The STRAT14 Quick Mount for Modern Tele Hardtail is the one to order. Click here to go to the STRAT14 ordering area to see a couple of examples of the different Hardtail saddle styles. If the Saddle adjustment screws are not in the center of the saddles on your guitar, then you need to choose the TELE14 for Offset model above.

This bender can be used on Telecasters with tailpieces and saddles like the ones shown below. There are yet other types of saddles as well on this type of flat plate with the lip on the back. Click here for a complete description of the Strat for Tele Hardtail tailpieces.
