I've seen those!! Apparently the guy is re-tooling for a re-launch! Sounds incredible... and doesn't look stupid either. Love it!!!

cool, but it looks way harder than a b-bender to use. Especially if you're hybrid picking/chiken piken with index through little fingers...

I wish I still had my b-bender. I'm still pissed off about that.

Trouble is, you have to use your hand to manipulate it.

B-benders that work off the strap button allow you to keep your picking hand free as you manipulate the bender from the shoulder. This allows you to do all sorts of picking around the straight and bent string.

We can always make you one or install one in an existing Tele for you.

That's a good point.

The handbender web page doesn't exist. The last post on their FB page was 3 years ago. I'd say it was a bust.
