HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FENDER B-BENDER
Lubrication
   From time to time you may need to use a tiny bit of oil on the B string bridge where the string contacts the saddle. This is the only recommended maintenance.

Tuning
   Start by tuning the B string pitch using the regular tuner.
   The thumb wheel tuner, located on the back cover plate of the Fender B-Bender, tunes the note that the B string is raised to when you actuate the Bender by pushing down on the neck of the guitar. Turn the thumb wheel towards the sharp (#) to raise the pitch or towards the flat (b) to lower the pitch of the actuated note.

Strings
   String Bender inventor Gene Parsons recommends B string gauge .013 for best tone. Feel free to experiment as all string gauges will work fine.

Spring Tension
   Please see a Certified Fender Service provider if you wish to alter the spring tension on your Fender B-Bender.
