John Shelton (above right with John Jorgenson at left) is an inventor/musician from Great Britain who came up with an ingenious bender system for the guitar. It is almost invisible and a minimum of routing is required to install it. I am pleased to offer his "B" bender system for $495.00 installed plus shipping. For guitars with the old style 3 saddle bridges the bridge will need to be upgraded to a modern 6 piece bridge for $65 including parts.
"Hi Jeff, I put the guitar and the new Shelton Bender through the paces last night at our show. I must say, I was very impressed. The bender was dead on accurate, and stayed perfectly in tune throughout our hour and a half set. Both the pull and the return are very positive, and you're right, there is no spongy feel at all. The pull stops right on pitch. I am extremely pleased with the Shelton Bender, and your craftsmanship and installation is superb. I couldn't be happier. As you know, I've played several different styles and types of benders in the past, but the Shelton Bender is truly a step ahead of the rest. The Shelton is what string bending is supposed to be about. Again, thanks so much! Lot's of compliments on the strap too! Take care, Bill"
