The b bender has what no other guitar has, a b bender! I play country, country rock and blues and this lets me get some real cool licks in. The licks cannot be duplicated efficiently without the b bender. I love this guitar and will always use it (or another b bender ) for my country lead guitar.
standard american tele. the b bender mechanism is rock solid. keep a little oil or grease on the b string bridge to stop squeaks.

I'd get guitar that's lighter next time

Guitar is fine and I tried to use it at the gig, my shoulder still hurts a month later. Gracious this thing is heavy, but then again I'm an older person.

Fender Nashville B-Bender best value for c/w music

By Swampdog122

from Homestead, Florida

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

Pure Telecaster twang combined with great versatility utilizing the middle stratocaster pickup and the Parsons-Green B-Bender System. This guitar is a must to laydown those Marty Stuart-Clarence White licks. Playability is great with a fast action neck and I believe the weight and mass of the b-bender system add to the great sustain of this guitar. I have an almost identical American Standard tele that does not have the great sustain of this guitar. This is the BEST guitar I've ever owned - GREAT, TWANGY TONE!

FANtastic!!!

By Guitar addict-jhDTQ

from Florence, Alabama

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

I own over a dozen guitars and this is really the best of all. I replaced the tone pot with a push/pull and rewired the 5 way switch so that I can use all 3 pickups at once or any combination of them.

AWESOME

By telerocker5150

from little rock

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

I am a rounded musician. I wanted a guitar that had country twang, blues punch, and an edgy rock tone. This is it. I was looking for a guitar with a 5 way switch and was wanting a b bender to begin with. I played mine and loved it!

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

This is simply a great piece of equipment to have. I Play country 2 nights a week and this guitar is great. I also play a Latin gig and an alternative rock gig. I use this guitar for all of them. My only complaint is they dont make a rosewood fretboard an option.

What a twanger!!

By Scott-SlllG

from Hurricane, WV

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

After watching this site for a month, a black Nashville B Bender Tele finally straggled in and I snagged it up. I really wanted the Sunburst but I didn't want to wait. The bender is great and I love learning the new licks but I am really surprised how much I like the guitar. Is it heavy? Yes, but not so much that it bothers me (think Les Paul). It sounds great through my Fender Reissue amps (Super & Deluxe Reverbs). I used to carry a Tele and a Strat to gigs but have taken just the Nashville Tele to my last 2 jobs and it has done great. Well made and even came in set up almost exactly the way I like. My new favorite.

Best guitar I've ever played!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

I had a U.S. Strat Ultra that I loved, and since purchasing my Tele, I have probably only picked up my strat a couple of times. I love this guitar. It is like playing two instruments. It's awesome!!

Sweeeeet . . .

By JimStarr

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

This is the easiest guitar to play that I've ever had. The action is fast, and the extra strat pickup gives it a punch when needed. This is one of those 'lifetime' guitars you always keep.

EXCELLENT guitar for the country lead guitarist

By Igloo20045

from Cisco, Texas

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

This guitar is great for anyone wanting to get that Brent Mason type playing style. With three pickups and the bender, it is excellent for the country lead guitarist. I give it a 10!

It's just bloody great...

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for the past three months now, and I can sincerely say that it is one of the best guitars I've ever had. 'This has got that bluesy strat sound, like Clapton, but you can get that twangy loud sound for rock or even grunge. Great guitar, not such a great price, but a great guitar anyway, Looking forward to start gigging with this. Cheers.

Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

I play mine through a Fender twin Reverb amp. The bridge pickup sounds a little thinner than I prefer, but overall, if you're into pickin' country music like I am, then this baby is the one for you!!

    Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

    This is a great guitar with amazing tone and playability. Even without engaging the bender, this machine plays better than any other guitar I own. I am amazed at the traditional country sounds this thing cranks out. And the parsons bender just makes it that much better.

      American Nashville B-bender Tele

      By tarp21

      from Brookfield, MO

      Comments about Fender American Nashville B-Bender Tele Electric Guitar:

      Excellent features! The stock pickups sound great through my Fender-Deluxe(with Celestion Vintage 30 speaker) as well as the Texas Special strat pickup. Nice blend of strat and tele sounds. My only complaint is the tone and volume knobs stick out a little. I'm worried something will happen and they will break. Action set nicely, however, slight buzz in open G-string. Other than that, everything is great! Intonation is set good with factory strings. 3-tone sunburst, WOW!! Maple neck! Very, very satisfied and highly recommend this guitar.
