Wanted WTB B-Blender

Gretschified
I had one when they were first reported here on the forum. It was fun, and worked. I just didn’t have the time to dedicate to using it with the bigsby handle. I have heard some great licks by others with it. Not sure why the site is down. Good luck!

The reason he's probably out of business is that b blender is a horrendously gimmicky and clunky piece of junk.
I've installed them on a few guitars for clients and eventually bought myself one for a gretsch. It's kind of neat at first, but not practical.
The bar is super thin and cheesy too so your bigsby no longer feels like a bigsby.
Everyone I know has eventually gone back to the standard bigsby arm.
That being said, I have one new in a box.
I'll sell it to you for $100 + shipping.

@cat3 , have you given thought to a Tele with a built-in / B-bender ? The type that your strap knob is used for . Ever thought about a G bender ? Heres a sample of each

Thanks for the input on the B-Blender. I still think I'd like to give it a try. It's my understanding that first versions were for use on either B7 or B70, and later versions were A or B for US/Licensed version of Bigsby. At any rate, mine is the B-70. Do you know if the one you have will fit? If so, you have a deal.
