- electric guitars
3Bender electric guitars use special 3Bender hardware that enables the player to bend 3 strings simultaneously. This allows you to simulate pedal steel guitar chords and licks. Setup as standard, the B string bends to C#, the G string bends to G# and the A string bends to B simultaneously. All the early models appear to be Telecaster style but other styles seem to be available as custom options. 3Bender was founded by Wade in 2018. The 3Bender concept was inspired by Bob Stafford's 'Stafford Bender' - Wade befriended Bob Stafford and bought the 'Stafford Bender' tooling from him before starting 3Bender.
