    Contemplating a P-W Bender on a GCS Les Paul

    I had a stealthy one put in a '13 Special (you know when they made that run of cheaper, but still USA Specials?). I sent it to a guy in the New England area (who has since passed, I think his son or SIL may still do them). Anyhow, it's good. Doesn't have the longer, weepy throw of a Parsons...

    Bigsby as a b-bender?

    Yep, these are the ones. I have had 2 over the years. Still have one. Still prefer the Parsons type by a long-shot, but these are nifty. Just saw the Drive-by Truckers here last night, and Jay Gonzalez had something like one of these on a guitar for the first song - might have been a...

    Bill Warford (of B&W Benders) passed away

    Dang! He did my Les Paul Special bender. What a shame. Sorry to hear that.

    Joyo Vintage Overdrive Review

    Loved the Sweet Baby pedal, but the switch was suspect from day 1. Instead of sending it back and hoping for the best, I thought "I can swap a switch out." Bad idea. It takes a goofy switch, the poles don't line up, blah blah blah and....instant paperweight. I fought with it for days...

    Mad Professor Sweet Honey----Joyo Sweet Baby?!

    Bought a Joyo Sweet Baby as a possible small 2nd board drive, or a keep-in-the-case backup drive. Thought it sounded just fine the few times I used it, but the switch was really stiff. Then I planned on having it be on the 2nd board, but the switch kept failing. Thinking myself mildly...

    Is this a new B-bender?

    I was going to post something about this one. I'm intrigued...I have a couple regular Bigsby guitars - for the price of a typical OD pedal it's not too much of a gamble (like the Rolling Bender price range - with which I'm happy). I'd like to see a youtube or other video though...

    Some interesting benders here;

    Great stuff!

    Two "new" Rolling Benders added..........

    Great question. Nope, just the lever rocks (or rolls) backward (from the fulcrum) like half a see-saw. That pic is from the day-of install. Mine has quite a patina already now.

    Joyo pedal users: how are your Joyos holding up?

    My stomp switch on my Sweet Baby has been sketchy from day 1. I hope it's an easy swap on my own...

    Wow - looks nice!

    B and W B benders install ??

    Actually yes, and to a Lester... I like that it's a strap-operated one, and I like that it's super-stealthy. The throw is much, much shorter than on my Tele, which makes it hard to get "weepy" with it. Dang fun though. Here's my other bender options:

    Adding a bender

    Very cool Chet, thanks. There is hope. Man, his ( prices are hefty! I'm sure he does an amazing job, but I paid $460 for the guitar! $2,150 for a Parsons install??

    Adding a bender

    Speaking of which bender... I have a Les Paul Jr. Special that I would love a bender on. My fave would be a Parsons style (like my #1 Tele), but the switch is up on that bout. Or is it an issue at all? The Jimmy Page Les Paul of his with the same rig obviously works. Plate style...
