Glaser Bender OEM Projects


In the early 1980s we started making 3 pu Teles with Benders - what soon came to be known as the Nashville Tele. One of the earliest to adopt this was Brent Mason who brought in his great idea of a mid pu blend, an all new way of sweetening the bridge pu sound. Fastforward to today, and we're proud work directly with Fender on their Brent Mason Telecaster complete with a convertible Glaser Bender and that breakthrough wiring.

Friedman has been making excellent T-Style relics for years. We collaborated with them on a limited run of Vintage-Ts complete with the convertible Glaser Bender system installed right here at our shop in Nashville, TN.


Dan Blom has 25 years of experience in Vintage Guitar repair. With his wealth of knowledge, he began to make great T-Style Guitars many of which feature the Glaser Bender. Here is his E.B. Rooster #64 Whiskey Pine T-Style with Bender.


James Trussart is one of the few builders who has broken the mold of traditional guitar making. Working with steel as the primary material, he produces guitars that are as unique in appearance as they are in tone. 

James recently put out a series of 6-string electric guitars featuring our Glaser Bender.
