Selling a telecaster style parts-o-caster guitar with a Matney USA Bender. The bender is adjustable for spring tension with the thumbwheel nut in the back and for the stopping point with a 1/8" Allen wrench. It can also be set up as a short, medium, or long throw bender (just change the location of the rod connector).

Guitar has a very thin Butterscotch lacquer finish. Look closely at the pictures, there are some scratches on the back where the string ferrules are. This should be a fairly easy fix, or you can just live with it and call it a relic.

***Search Matney USA on YouTube or TDPRI for a review of Matney Custom Benders and to see what others have to say about Matney Benders***

If you look on ebay, it costs $599 to add a Matney bender to your existing guitar. For $500 you get the entire guitar, Fender licensed birdseye maple neck, electronics, tuners, etc.

Guitar does not come with a case.

Buy pays actual shipping.

Potentially interested in trades, trades plus cash, etc.

I've had some questions so I'll post the answers here:

I don't know who the maker of the body is, I do know it is 2 piece Alder made in the USA and the body alone weighs 4.85 lbs. I bought it pre-loaded with the bender already installed directly from Matney

As far as the electronics, the pickups aren't anything boutique, but they are off a Fender. I bought a preloaded pickguard and switchplate from Stratosphere.

Total weight of the guitar according to my bathroom scale is 7.4 lbs.

I received a question asking about how tight the neck fits the body. It is a fairly snug fit, but there is a small gap on the left side as you face the guitar. Hopefully these pics can capture that.
