    Good luck with your bender project, it sounds like it'll be a killer! What do you have for a bridge pickup?

    I have a tonerider Hot Classic ALnico 3. I love them, have them in all my teles. I wired it right to the pots and bypassed the switch. I use the tone control to get what I want. Now on it I will have- The Hipshot, a drop D tuner, and Banjo tuners on the A and High E. When I play it'll look like I am some killer player, but actually fer now I am a poser! I play slide, rythtm and lead on it. I use the banjo tuners fer open G. I wanted the hipshot to do Pedal steel stuff and I love the b bender stuff I hear and would like to learn it.

    in the hands of a real player it would be a monster, LOL

    Have a great day

    Well, got it and installed it, literally took 10 minutes! I cut channels into the bridge plate and off we went- works great and now I gotta learn how to play it!
