Parsons/Green string bender on the American std telecaster

Posted by Adrian Dunlop on Sun, 11/26/00 - 19:46:11.

Has anyone out there played the b-bender teles?
Do they stay in tune?
Does anyone know how these units compare to the Parsons White string benders?

I have never heard of tuning problems like you have with those "floating" tremolo things. There are many kinds of benders on the market now, and I believe all have adjustable and positive, effective stops for both the Up and Down string positions.
To see (and hear) a version that resembles a HipShot (more like the Will Ray HelleBender, actually), have a look on the "Twang Page" after you get to this web site URL:
