Jon's Simple B-Benders

Why do B-benders have to be complicated? Here are three that I have on my guitars that each have one moving part.

Yes, this one is made from a tablespoon. Has a tunable stop.

This one bends the B string when pushed down (with a stop tuned at a whole step) and bends the G string when pulled up. The acrylic disk is attached with double-stick. Orignally, I had it working with no screws into the guitar, with the axle anchored to just the stop tailpiece and the bridge. But now there's a bracket held with one screw under the bridge. ∎
