Lives for gear
I've got the Hipshot on one of my Teles. Pros are no carving into the guitar. Some people don't like using their hip for the bend. G bend is done with a palm lever.

i would go with the Gene Parsons bender, it dose require someone who knows what they are doing to install one.
i was one of a very few individuals certified by Gene Parsons to do the install.
as it is no walk in the park i would say find a shop he has certified.
Gene's bender work better then any of the others i have seen.
