Is there ANY disadvantage to putting this on a guitar? It seems like a really cool concept..... but i don't wanna screw up my guitar. Could i put one on my strat?
Oh yea, to steven seagull.... i couldn't click your link from the other thread cause for some reason, links that people post don't work and freeze up my computer

it'll only work on a fixed bridge, tele's are the usual choice as they're string through. However it's a load of dicking around, they're expensive and there's a lot to go wrong, and pretty pointless to be honest...they're some kind of weird country music invention.

is it that much more expensive to get a tele witrh one than a tele without one?
I love tricking my guitars out with unneccessary stuff

I'd guess that it costs about £300 to install a B-Bender.

Nope, I was wrong...closer to £500.

Yeah they're mainly a country thing for bending during 'chickn pickn' I'm pretty sure. And they look like a fair job to install.

I dunno, if you got the cash then get one and see if it's cool or not and post videos of it for UG to see.

I wouldn't bother with it but maybe you can do some crazy **** with it.

Jimmy Page had one of these installed in one of his Les pauls, and afterwards he said it completely ruined the tone

plus I dont see the point in having one

A store nearby has a Tele with one, and really, it's pretty pointless. I mean, honestly, I'm not a country player or anything, but it just seemed like too much effort to use in a musical fashion.
