    I am looking for color pictures of the bender Tele that Bernie Leadon used in the Eagles.

    Thanks!

    I saw that pic but was hoping to find some nice pics of the front. I could only find 2 or 3 and they were pretty small.

    Is that one his? The one he used had a humbucker in the neck.

    Bernie's contributions were so overlooked and then overshadowed by Don Felder before he left the band.

    The guitar went through some changes.
    I think it started life with a white (Oly?) finish and a rosewood fingerboard.
    It had it's finish stripped, Gibson humbucker, maple neck and Evans bender added.
    Years ago, it was offered for sale.
    I heard Clarence White first, but Bernie and his Tele made be buy a B bender.
    My first was a Glaser.
    It was great, but I have always wanted an Evans bender.
    Maybe when I grow up.:rolleyes:

    Boy does that man know how to make it sing!!

    Didn't Bernie Leaden also have a B Bender with a roll knob and a PAF in the neck position? I think I've seen him using something like that in a very early rendition of Take it Easy and Glen Frey is playing something like a 335/Casino but it's not a Gibson- has P-90s.Just checking my facts and trying to clarify things- not self- checking.:confused:
