    Product Description

    Gibson and B-Bender innovator Joe Glaser join forces to create an all new beast, the Gibson Music City Jr with B-Bender Electric Guitar! This incredible guitar is designed to be a country and rock player’s dream. The Music City Jr. with B-Bender guitar gives a new look, voice, and feel to the world of faux pedal-steel bending, 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 a traditional Gibson 24 3/4 inch scale length, a glued-in neck, a 12 inch fingerboard radius, and a 1 11/16 inch neck width at the nut. Gibson also gave this guitar 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, the Music City Jr B-Bender is superb to play and adaptable to a wide range of musical styles!

    Gibson Music City Jr B-Bender Electric Guitar Features
    Solid grade-A Ash body with high-gloss nitrocellulose finish
    Solid Maple neck with slim '60s profile
    Maple fingerboard with acrylic dot inlays
    Pair of split-coil P-90 pickups in the neck and bridge positions
    Built-in lightweight B-Bender system with adjustable bridge, can be converted to a G-Bender
    Grover kidney tuners with 14:01 tuning ration
    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 Gibson 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 minimally routed to accept the lightweight bender mechanism and through-body bridge. A distinctive tortoiseshell patterned pick guard beautifully tops off the visuals.

    A solid maple neck is glued in traditional Gibson style, carved to a fast, slim ’60s profile that measures .800 inch deep at the 1st fret and .875 inch at the 12th, and topped with a Grade-A fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and black dot position markers.

    What sets this guitar apart is the 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.

    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 country.

    B-Bender History
    The ‘B-Bender’ has been an essential part of the Nashville sound ever since legendary guitarist Clarence White and drummer friend Gene Parsons installed their wild new invention, a B-string bender operated by pulling down on the strap button, in White’s old guitar back in 1965. 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.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Great guitar. I didnt give it 5 stars for two reasons. 1. The fretboard is not sealed. It stains from the oils in your fingers very easily. 2. The fret ends could be dressed better. Not bad but not what I expect from a Gibson.
