The Duesenberg-Multibender is a replacement-bridge for Strats and Teles. On a Strat® the Multibender can be installed easily without any modifications (this assumes an existing routing for tremolo and a spacing of 56mm between the two outer tremolo screws). The string-lever allows the bending of the string in two (tonal-)directions for one or two halftones. Combining this with open tunings and slide-method-playing, quite realistic Pedalsteel-sounds can be achieved. But the Multibender also works in standard tunings and playing-methods. In this case you can achieve the wellknown B- and G- Bender sounds.
Dimensions of the baseplate: 82 x 74 x 14,5 mm. String spacing: 54 mm.
The Multibender in it's basic version includes two levers. But it can be expanded anytime with additional levers. On these videoclips (see details), the outstanding guitarist Martin Huch(who was deeply involved in the development of the Multibender, and also is one of the guitarists playing on our legendary "Rockinger All Pickup Check CD") demonstrates the amazing possibilities of this bridge.
