The Fender Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar was modeled after the personally customized guitars of some of Nashville's top players. This versatile instrument can open new worlds of music to you. It features the Parsons-Green B-Bender system and adds a Texas Special Strat pickup in the middle position and 5-way Strat-o-Tele switching. Includes case.

The sweetly plaintive sound of pedal steel guitar from a time-honored special Telecaster design. For the guitarist who yearns to pour beguiling country expressiveness into every lonesome, heart-tugging note, the inventive design and classic style of the U.S.-made American Nashville B-Bender Telecaster has no equal. A wonderfully moving sound from a truly distinctive Tele model.

A Fantastic Instrument

By eugene

from Fairfield, NJ

Purchased my Sunburst B-Bender from my local store a few weeks ago. Playing a Rickenbacker 360 12 in a band in the sixties, where 80% of our material was Byrds covers, I was always mesmerized by the playing of Clarence White. It's only now all these years later that I could afford this instrument. The finish and workmanship is first rate, the action is wonderful, and the set-up was perfect, right out of the box. While I have a ton of practice ahead of me, my first couple of weeks with the guitar have been loads of fun. Can't wait to keep working on technique and expanding my repertoire . I would also like to extend my compliments to my local Guitar Center store for their wonderful, error free processing of my order, and to the professional service I received for a phone inquiry while I was waiting for the guitar to be delivered. Couldn't be more satisfied.

New Favorite

By Roy

from Hillsboro, TX

Just picked this baby up a month ago. Wanted to spend some time with it before I wrote this review. When I picked it up I invited a buddy to test it out with me to test her out. First thing we both noticed when the case was opened was how white the maple neck was. We both own several strats everything from a 1976 black one with a maple neck to a 40th anniversary tobacco sunburst. The quality of this instrument is amazing. Of all the guitars I've owned from a 72 Black Beauty Les Paul and my all time favorite a BC Rich Mockingbird This one has them all topped for for overall ease of playing to purity of the tone throughout the instrument. We both check every note on every fret before we left and neither could find a flaw anywhere! Though I bought the B-Bender primarily for Country, I have found it very interesting to use in classic rock. Delivers the purest Keith Richards tone I have ever heard and beautiful on Led Zeppelin. Glad to see this level of quality and craftsmanship is still alive!

Versatile Tele

By Scott

from Missouri

I purchased this Tele looking for a guitar that could twang but could also rock in a pinch. It twangs with the best of 'em and the B-bender has a sound that you can't find elsewhere, plus the combination of the neck & middle pickups makes for a more than passable rock rhythm sound. My only real complaint here is the weight - thanks to the B-bender its at least a couple of pounds heavier than my Les Paul!
