    Does anyone have a list of female B Bender players, or can you point me toward any? Also, are there any women B bender players here on the forum? Just doing some ethnographic research and am stuck on this point. Thanks.

    Seems you'll have to narrow your search to Dunedin. Or New Zealand, if you're willing to travel.

    I'm stuck between thinking it's a good pickup line, and a strange research project.

    I have some recollection of knowing at least one, but I can't recall her name now. Maybe Wanda Vick or Rosie Flores, both of whom are great Telecaster players?

    A List ?

    Considering the thousands and thousands of guitars players, ( probably millions) we barely have a list of well known MALE Bender players past 25 or 30 . ok stretch that to 50 .

    Maybe some gals will respond.

    I’m a B bender guy, I have been since 1980.
    Locally, I know of two more.
    It is not a big club.
    There are tons of male country players here.
    I know of three female country guitar players around here.
    None use a B bender.
    I’ve often wondered why so few country guitarists explore it.

    Rick Towne: I'd forgotten about Wanda. Thanks for that. I know Rosie, and while she plays with a Bigsby, she doesn't use a B Bender. --je
