Meet a GEnuine American Genius

Around August 2012, travelling from LA to Portland on his way to mix Analog Universe in Cass’s studio, Paul dropped in on an American icon, Gene Parsons. 

Gene’s first glimpse of fame came as drummer of The Byrds during their heyday. Now he makes custom guitars fitted with his own invention, the B-Bender. 

Paul ordered a Fender Tele with a B-Bender and then, five months and 33,000 miles later, he came back to collect it. Spend a little time with this charming man and learn about his craft, his music and his warm personality.
