A Note From David Certano

My name is David Certano, I am a French craftsman. Like my father and his father, I am a musician. My dad was a guitar player in a country and bluegrass band, so I was surrounded by that atmosphere since I was a kid and I loved it. I started playing guitar when I was 14.

I have always been passionate about mechanics and manufacturing objects. I worked for cinema, theater and television in the manufacturing of special effects and mechanical and electronic devices.

Not finding a solution on the market that suited me to have a B and G Bender on my guitar, I decided to make one for myself. I needed something that was simple and very robust, that wouldn’t go out of tune or break the strings. Following keen interest in my Bender system, and many customer inquiries, I created my own Bender manufacturing company. Thus, in collaboration with Allparts, the Certano T-Bender™ for Tele® was born.

To install it, nothing could be simpler, you just need to remove your original bridge and replace it with the Certano T-Bender bridge. No additional drilling is required, so this action is completely reversible.

Thank you for reading. I know you’ll have fun with the Certano T-Bender for Tele®!

Au revoir,

David Certano
