    I've been thinking about installing a bender in one of my telecasters, but I'm not too crazy about having a big chunk of wood taken out of the back. Is there an alternative to the parsons/white model that's more viable without removing so much mass of the guitar? I'm not familiar with other models out there.

    Glaser benders ...and the several clones thereof require less routing than a PW...or its clones and variations...but...something to keep in mind is the style you want to play...the Glaser is the tool for the contemporary hot country speed picking stuff...the PW is a bit more "laid back"...
