In the video below, Brad Paisley discusses and demos his G-bender-equipped Fender Telecaster.

In the clip, which was shot at the Nashville Guitar Center, Paisley talks about his choice to install a G-bender, as opposed to the more common B-bender (as used by Clarence White and Jimmy Page). The G-bender bends the G string up a whole step.

It's worth noting that, while there are a few B-bender-equipped guitars available today, Gibson recently introduced its new Music City Jr. model, a Les Paul Jr. with a lightweight Joe Glaser B-Bender [Note: Glaser also installed Paisley's G-bender]. With a few simple changes, however, it can become a G-bender.
