Bend it!

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

In Gui­tarist this month is a fas­ci­nat­ing fea­ture on B-Bender gui­tars. In­vented in 1965 by Gene Par­sons and Clarence White of The Byrds to em­u­late the cry­ing sound of pedal steel, the B-Bender is a rare beast. The prize for the big­gest B-Bender ob­ses­sion surely must go to col­lec­tor Sa­muel Ah­den of the fa­bled guitar mu­seum in Umea, Swe­den. Sa­muel owns 41 of the things and has had Par­sons (who still builds them to or­der) in­stall B-Ben­ders in a Tele and LP Ju­nior. Read the full story in Gui­tarist, is­sue 398 – out now.
