The player of this SG was having issues with the original bridge breaking strings and decided to replace it with a Tonepros AVR-II. This new bridge came with unslotted saddles so the string spacing needed to be laid out and cut before installation. See the video below from the daily vlog.

Hipshot B-Bender :: 1996 Fender 50th Anniversary Tele [8.8 lbs]
Here's a Tele with an aftermarket Hipshot string bender previously installed in for a setup. I increased the neck angle and notched the saddles to help keep the string spacing consistent at the bridge. As for the string bender, there is 6th string drop (set for a whole step down E - D), 3rd string hand lever (set to raise a whole step G - A) and a hip-activated lever on the 2nd string (set for a whole step up B - C#).
With some practice this thing is a lot of fun. I'll post a video of me fumbling around with this guy over on the blog soon.
