Glaser's New Convertible B/G-Bender and Updated Nashville 3-pickup wiring - Ask Zac 80

April 17, 2020

Joe Glaser is the guru that has kept Nashville guitarists up and running since the early 80s. With help from Brent Mason, Steve Wariner, and Ricky Skaggs, his string benders and 3-pickup Telecaster setups became "must-haves" for anyone wanting to be seen as a serious guitarist in Music City. Today, we look at Joe's recently revamped string bender mechanism, which is now convertible between the B or G string, and his updated middle pickup blend control for 3-pickup Telecasters.

Find out more about Glaser's bender, and set up a time for an install.
