    Never had a bender before. I want a strap actuated B Bender like the Parsons/White installed on my Tele guitar. Got an estimate quote from G.P. himself. I haven't pulled the trigger just yet and am just wondering if any other companies offer similar quality units. If so, WHERE?

    I have a Forrest Lee Jr bender and it's fantastic. I couldn't recommend him enough. And Forrest is a complete gem to do business with.

    Check into Dave Evans, Pull String. I have two and I think they are the best in the biz. Not the cheapest, but, most versatile, adjustable, stable, and durable. You can have a variety of "throw" lengths in minutes and infinitely adjustable tensioning. The workmanship is incomparable. www.evanspullstring.com

    I've had my Forrest Lee Jr. bender for a month now and still love it! No issues at all and works perfectly. Highly recommend his work.

    I've had my Forrest Lee bender for a couple years now and still works as good as the day I got it. He has quick turnaround time, too.

    +2 for Pull Strings (because I have two of them). Fully adjustable throw length and spring tension, lighter weight, and his machine work is stunning in its precision. I also have PW's and other brands and IMO the Pull String is the best of the best.
