The B-Bender gave guitarists the ability to imitate pedal-steel bends mid-flow on a standard guitar, and broadened the country vocabulary enormously. In the early 80’s Joe Glaser developed a new style B-Bender that was only installed at his personal “shop of the stars” in Nashville. Now Gibson and Joe Glaser combine forces to bring the Music City Jr. with B-Bender a new look, voice, and feel to the world of faux pedal-steel bending, in a guitar fully equipped to pull off these impressive tricks, while loaded for fat, driving Gibson P-90 tone—along with coil-tap switching to access brighter single-coil tones. The Music City Jr. with B-Bender is constructed in the full Gibson tradition, with a 24 ¾” scale length, a glued-in neck, a 12” fingerboard radius, and a 1 11/16” neck width at the nut, but it incorporates crucial elements from traditional B-Bender guitars such as a light ash body, a maple neck and fingerboard, and through-body stringing courtesy of a converted Gibson Nighthawk bridge. The result blends elements of classic twang tone with Gibson’s legendary thick, rich voice. To top it off, it’s superb to play and adaptable to a wide range of musical styles.</p><p>Legendary for its gutsy lows, punchy midrange, and silky highs, in addition to its comfortably light weight, ash has been acclaimed as a tone wood for more than six decades. The Music City Jr. with B-Bender begins with a body of solid Grade-A ash, which is crafted in the shape of the single-cutaway Les Paul Jr. and Special, and minimally routed to accept the lightweight bender mechanism and through-body bridge. The guitar is in Antique Natural vintage gloss, to beautifully show of the distinctive grain of this wood. A distinctive tortoiseshell patterned pick guard beautifully tops off the visuals. A solid maple neck is glued in in traditional Gibson style, carved to a fast, slim ’60s profile that measures .800” deep at the 1st fret and .875” at the 12th, and topped with a Grade-A fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and black dot position markers. The secret weapon in the package is a lightweight B-Bender mechanism hidden within the back of the guitar’s body: put downward pressure on the guitar so the strap pulls the neck-end strap button upward, and an internal lever-and-gear system bends your B string anywhere from a half tone to a full tone sharp, as determined by the player. With a few simple changes it can be a G-Bender, and a set of high-quality Grover™ tuners make tune-ups a breeze.</p><p>While the stirring, energetic B-Bender sound has long been a classic element of “hot licks” country playing, you’ve never heard it with a tone as thick and meaty as the Music City Jr. with B-Bender delivers. Two of Gibson’s fat, growling P-90s yield a sound beloved by guitarists since these iconic pickups first hit the scene in the pre-rock’n’roll days, but this guitar holds further surprises: lift the push-pull switch on either pickup’s volume knob to access a coil tap that bleeds off a portion of the P-90’s coil windings, accessing a brighter, snappier tone more reminiscent of thinner single-coil styles. Between this switching, the independent volume and master tone controls, and Gibson’s classic three-way pickup switch, the Music City Jr. with B-Bender is packed with a tonal versatility that belies its outward simplicity, primed for blues, rock, jazz, or—yep—country. Check it out now at your authorized Gibson Dealer, and bring a new breed of twang to your arsenal.</p><p>Every Music City Jr. with B-Bender comes protected in a custom Gibson B-Bender hardshell case, and includes an owner’s manual, truss-rod wrench, and adjustment literature, and comes covered by Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service. </p> Read more about <a href="http://www.musicradar.com/news/guitars/namm-2013-gibson-launches-music-city-jr-with-b-bender-570239">NAMM 2013: Gibson launches Music City JR. with B-Bender</a> at MusicRadar.com<img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/673/f/8601/s/27e75a96/mf.gif' border='0'/><div class='mf-viral'><table border='0'><tr><td valign='middle'><a href="http://share.feedsportal.com/viral/sendEmail.cfm?lang=en&title=NAMM+2013%3A+Gibson+launches+Music+City+JR.+with+B-Bender&link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.musicradar.com%2Fnews%2Fguitars%2Fnamm-2013-gibson-launches-music-city-jr-with-b-bender-570239" target="_blank"><img src="http://res3.feedsportal.com/images/emailthis2.gif" border="0" /></a></td><td valign='middle'><a href="http://res.feedsportal.com/viral/bookmark.cfm?title=NAMM+2013%3A+Gibson+launches+Music+City+JR.+with+B-Bender&link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.musicradar.com%2Fnews%2Fguitars%2Fnamm-2013-gibson-launches-music-city-jr-with-b-bender-570239" target="_blank"><img src="http://res3.feedsportal.com/images/bookmark.gif" border="0" /></a></td></tr></table></div><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/151885089605/u/49/f/8601/c/673/s/27e75a96/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/151885089605/u/49/f/8601/c/673/s/27e75a96/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/151885089605/u/49/f/8601/c/673/s/27e75a96/a2t.img" border="0"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/musicradar/all/news/~4/vrX42cJySU0" height="1" width="1"/>
