    NBD Well it was actually new bender day last week, just getting around to posting it. It's a Kirkpatrick Benders G-Bender. I debated getting the B, I've never played a G, but it didn't seem right putting a B on Brad Paisley signature. It's different, but every time I play it I find a different way to use it. I have a P/G Fender, and the pulls are totally different, not saying it's bad just different. It's a Glaser style so it pulls off the neck plate versus the P/G off the top bout. I'm very pleased with the bender, the least invasive, which I wanted for this guitar. I know this guitar has it's detractors, but it is beating the crap out of my P/G for the number one spot. I'm 53, and lightweight beats everything else, and that flake man, I love some flake.

    Our lead player uses a G bender. He constantly blows my mind with it.

    Congrats on the new Bender! I hope to bring a G-bender into the family soon as well. Don't think I'll go the double bender route and have the B/G on one guitar. Keep it Bent!

    very cool. I have that guitar (no bender). It's easily my best playing tele - super light, resonate, spanky...LOVE that neck. Plus, it's the only fender guitar that I haven't changed the pickups in.

    nice guitar and puller, congrats.!

    It must be very difficult switching between the two guitars , G and B, all of the intervals and pulling phrases are in different fret board positions. I don't know how you do it ! :)

    I placed the G Pull on my Gibson Music City Jr, 15 minutes later I put it back to the B , where my other 3 guitars pull the B.

    Its not that its hard or difficult, but studying one has very little connection to the other. Its like bowing down to two different masters ! :eek:

    Good luck nice axe !
