Could a person's way of stringing a guitar affect how much you're ultimately able to bend the strings? It seems like every other guitar than mine that I play, I'm able to bend the strings a lot easier. I know string choice is one factor that plays into it but I use slinkys and they're pretty much known to be very bendable or flexible when playing.
Get smaller guage strings.
.09 should get the job done.
What are you using atm?
I love white guitars!
The action of the strings, the bow of the neck (tightness of the truss rod), the guage of the strings, and the bridge that your guitar is equipped with can all factor the difficulty, of your bends.
