Marty Stuart purchased Clarence White’s original Parsons/White B-Bender and gigs with it all the time. Great to see this iconic guitar played. Especially by a great player like Marty. If you look close you can see Marty use his shoulder to use the B-Bender. It is very subtle the technique he uses to string bend.
Very cool, filmed at Les Paul’s house Mahwah, New Jersey in 1985
Clarence White’s B-Bender Telecaster now owned and played by Marty Stuart. This is the guitar that Gene Parsons and Clarence White modified creating the B-Bender guitar when with the Byrds.
Clarence White was a true original. Not only was he an amazing acoustic guitar player, he was the co-inventer of the Parsons/White B-bender and amazed us all with his innovative playing. Clarence White’s original B-bender Telecaster is now owned and played by Marty Stuart after Clarence left us way too soon after being hit by a drunk driver. Watch Clarence White in action.
