Here’s a brand new Forrest Custom Guitars B-Bender, built by Forrest Lee Jr. himself, of course, at his shop in Tennessee. The guitar features a swamp ash body, a reliced and aged white blonde nitro finish, maple neck, Forrest Custom 3/2 boost coil (by Callahan) pickup in the neck and a Callahan 50s bridge pickup. Hardshell case.
The main feature, of course, is Forrest’s B-Bender. If you’re not familiar with the B-Bender, it allows you to bend the B string up as much as a full step by pulling down on the neck of the guitar when you are using a strap. This lets you mix in some pedal steel type licks. The guitar solos on the Eagles’ “Peaceful Easy Feeling” and the Grateful Dead’s “Box of Rain” both feature Teles with B-Benders. Very cool guitar. Here’s a video demo of a Forrest guitar:
Lots of fun to play and it can do things you just can’t do on any other electric.
