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!

Nashville B-bender Tele

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!
