    I recently purchased some guitar parts and bodies from the estate of a musician / hobbyist builder. Among the treasures I brought home is this really nice, Warmoth, 3 pound 4 ounce, ash body, that has been routed prepped for a Double Bender install. Unfortunately, none of the bender hardware was anywhere to be found, in the guitar related stuff that the estate sale company had offered for sale, so I have a body, but no bender parts.

    Based on what I have seen in other people's photos, the routing seems to be consistent with the wood work necessary for a Parsons Double Bender installation. Given the complexity of installation, and proprietary nature of the Double Bender, I totally understand why the parts are not offered for sale on the StringBender website. My question is this: is there any source for purchasing the parts necessary to put together a Parsons style Double Bender system that I can install in this Telecaster build?

    With all the work that the previous owner put into this body, I would like to finish the build that he started.. 23843505_10156778102109256_9123406690929400709_n.jpg
