    So, after using a HipShot for a couple of years, I had a bender built for me. It's a Parsons-Green, but that works fine for me.

    Here it is:

    Strat pickup in the neck is a great idea.

    More pics you tease! Neck looks nice and flamey from here too. What kind of pickups?

    [​IMG] Neck is a Warmoth modern, flame maple, boat neck profile, finished with gun oil.

    Pickups are a custom-wound Dawgtown set, with an AlNiCo 2/5 mix in each. S1 switch for 'strat-o-tele' switching.

    Body is one-piece alder, finish is Chevy sea mist green nitro. Binding is white ABS with ebony/maple Purfling on top.

    Bridge and tuners are Hipshot.

    There are bushings to mount a Hipshot G-lever later. I have the item, custom ordered to clear the B ferrule.
