Thats cool, looks like it could give quite the purple nurple though!
December 6th, 2011, 05:03 PM
Yikes! Won't anyone ever "invest" in that thing????
December 6th, 2011, 10:10 PM
asastfan....I think that used to belong to Clarence's dog!

You must be right Dave....I think I can see some paw prints on that thing! I just wonder if there's any documentation to verify.
December 7th, 2011, 10:33 AM
That thing has come up before on eBay IIRC.
December 7th, 2011, 11:22 AM
that resembles the bender unit on the back of the Les Paul Jr. that Frank Rekard played when he was with Emmylou Harris. It had that same long piece and everything......JH in Va.

Stay away from it. Many people have suggested that It is definitely not Clarence's. Even Gene Parsons doesn't remember anything about it.
December 11th, 2011, 12:07 PM
The story unfolding around this thing has become like a Monty Python skit. Do a little googling and searching the tdpri. Bob Warford, you're a lawyer....can't we stop this guy?
December 12th, 2011, 02:51 PM
Clarence was never associated with this atrocity...
December 12th, 2011, 03:03 PM
That would look cool on a Steampunk guitar:
December 12th, 2011, 04:18 PM
Painted on grain? :shock:
December 12th, 2011, 07:00 PM
Rube Goldberg called, he wants his prototype b-Bender back.....
December 12th, 2011, 09:26 PM
Sorry guys, we should bump this to the Bad Dog Café....
December 13th, 2011, 12:32 PM
That bender has poped up before. I'd stay away from it.

looks like a steering lock with a guitar attached to fool thieves
December 13th, 2011, 05:42 PM
Stealing this would get the police involved. That might solve this once and for all.
P.S. djalt does not promote theft. Only honesty and integrity and respect, especially for great guitar players who have passed away.

You must be right Dave....I think I can see some paw prints on that thing! I just wonder if there's any documentation to verify.I'm sure Mr. Haney has all the documents you need, Mr. Douglass.

This is when Roger McGuinn had a mid-life crisis.

That monstrosity will never go away till some maroon buys it and burns it to powder and throws the ashes in the Mississippi river during a torrential rainstorm..........
December 14th, 2011, 03:20 PM
+1 for the fantastic imagery conjured up just then.....

Even if we assume that this is 100% real, I think it's waaaay overpriced. I just wasted 9 minutes watching the YouTube videos that swear it's legit.
December 15th, 2011, 03:38 PM
i wonder if it's a real 1968 or is that fake too?
December 15th, 2011, 09:14 PM
I bet the "bicycle hub" was actually off a wheelchair.....
December 18th, 2011, 12:15 PM
Commenting further just keeps this zombie alive....
D'oh! I just revived the monster.... :(
December 20th, 2011, 12:43 AM
OK, hopefully Paul can find a way to kill any more threads regarding this...thing.
FWIW, here is Bart Haney's "resume":
With Bart Haney and Clarence White, (Roger) Bush was briefly part of a short-lived country group called Trio in 1966.
Isn't anyone hear wealthy enough to buy that damned thing just to burn it and post the video on YouTube?
December 20th, 2011, 06:47 AM
....maybe they would have more luck on eBay by relisting it as a cucumber slicer...:shock:
December 20th, 2011, 10:43 AM
Maybe, every time this auction comes up, someone else should list a $.99 auction for documentation that the guitar in question is NOT what it is represented.
December 20th, 2011, 10:49 AM
Y'all don't mind if I close this thread, do you? Just to let it disappear into the archives?
I didn't think so!
