    HOLY COW!

    I just saw this guitar of Tim Wallis's on facebook. B G and A benders plus six string drops on tuning pegs.

    I would love to play it once, but I think its beyond me. I have had a few double benders and the second bender always threw me. I like a single b bender and sometimes a dropper on the low e. Regardless.... what a cool guitar.

    Crazy! Is that a Hurst shifter? Electric or pull start? I'd probably hurt myself trying to play that. I know Tim can handle it.

    This 'un will probably do the same thing.........

    it's my Epi Les Paul with coil tap, phase switch, Bigsby Palm Pedal to raise both the B and G a whole tone each and finally, Keith/Scruggs tuners on all six strings. Every peg lowers each string a whole tone except the third string which is lowered to F#..........JH in Va.

    That guitar looks awesome but I really don't get the comments that people post refering to multi-benders being confusing (Thats like saying "I only bend just 1 string with my fingers when I play the blues).

    I ordered 4 of them new string drops from Tim a couple months ago but I'm still waiting on them. Can't wait to try 'em out though.
