I have been trying to find a bit more info,there is not much out there or i am i looking in the wrong places.I have one in two tone sundurst 50s style,iit;s Tokais' own system not the parsons/White.Works very well,you can select the E B or G string and change the pitch up to 3 semitones.There are references to a 3 String Bender by Tokai,you could fit 3 strings at same time but it would not work as you cannot adjust the individual string pitch.Does any know how this is constructed as all the mechanism is hidden.
