The new "Skip a String" setup Like many other products I make is a response to customer queries.  It is made specifically for standard dobro open G tuning (GBDGBD). With a typical two string bender ( one that only acts on adjacent string) you can only get access to the 4 chord and relative minor by acting on strings 1 & 2, or 5&6 in std open G tuning. Some players find this cumbersome.  With the Skip a string setup you can act on strings 2 and 4, which makes for a bit more natural of a setup for many players.  Installation and use is just like my other bender combos.

Use this device on your guitar or lap steel to pedal steel tones without lugging around, or learning to play, a pedal steel. Even used very simply they can add a great deal of depth and width to your music. I'm no steel player, but I use mine in home recordings all the time to create accents and a sense of space, with a little practice you can add a lot to your music with one of these. 

Machined from billet aluminum, and polished to a high gleaming shine, these benders are 100% made and assembled right here in my small Indiana shop. These were designed for lap steels, but should work on just about any electric guitar (albeit it may take a little creativity in some cases).

Though I have used them only as a G and B bender, these can be installed on any string pair that you want, and can be adjusted for 1/2 steps or whole steps, you could even do a step and half or two steps as long as your strings can take it. The possibilities for different tunings are endless. 

These ship with all the installation hardware you need, which includes the Bender, mounting screws, pitch tuning machine screws, brass inserts, and Allen adjustment key.  

For those who are interested I also offer a full installation kit at a cost of $25, which includes the correct size drill bits, center punch, and blind hole spotters, to make the installation easier.
