    I've been looking all over for one of these. I see that Hipshot has dealers, but they're all little tiny shops and it seems that no one has any. I know I could buy one directly from Hipshot, but they charge full MSRP and i'd prefer not do that if I don't have to. Does anyone know where one could procure one at a reasonable price?

    I have 2 Hipshot equipped guitars!
    I LOVE em’.
    Brilliant, non invasive engineering!
    They are moderately common on CL around here.
    I got both of mine (Will Ray model-simplist/best, IMO)
    ofF CL here for $75.
    Good luck!

    I may still have the one that I took off when I got a Parsons/White. Will have to check when I get home from work.

    I found one on Reverb, it saved me $40 over what Hipshot wanted.

    I'll second what Brookdale Bill said, the Hipshot is a really useful piece and you don't have to modify your guitar all to hell to use it. I've had mine on 3 different Teles since I got it, and none of them are any worse for wear.

    I originally had a Hipshot B-bender on my long-gone '96 paisley Telecaster but after I found someone (Bill Bores) who installed the Parsons/White B/G benders, I ditched the Hipshot because the P/W benders were what I wanted to begin with......and I still wish I had that guitar! :(:cry::cry::mad::mad:
