    I found a Gregory tele with a b bender for sale on local craigslist. Before I go any further I know the man who made it personally, being from TN. I know the opinions about him are pretty much true and dead accurate. But I also know the man who wound the pickups in this guitar and he says it's a fantastic piece. One more thing. It's not one that I'm ordering from Greg himself. Opinions?

    And there's a downside? Looks like a pretty nice piece. B-bender to boot, if that's what your looking for.

    Assuming you'll get to try it out before you make a decision.

    $600 doesn't seem unreasonable if you like it and it checks out.

    If you can check it out and it functions properly, why not?

    Ok I'm going to look at it Saturday. I'm really excited I've always wanted a b bender tele. Possible NGD coming soon!

    Ferrules look crooked in that photo, though I may be wrong. But be careful:

    If the ferrules aren't drilled properly, God knows what else is going on, and for $600?
