Among the various Jazzmasters, Al Jardine's Strat and Jeffrey Foskett's 335's, there was a red rosewood board PW bender Telecaster in at least 4 songs, one of which featured some very tasteful fills. I'm looking to see who it was; not from Brian's usual band I think, and he sang one lead vocal as well.

By a process of elimination, it looks like it's Scott Totten, the Brian and Al-less Beach Boys musical director, playing the bender. I've contended for 20 years that it's not just for country anymore.

Agree! There's all kinds of bendy stuff that goes on in World music too (Indian and Middle eastern come to mind). You could probably apply a bender in some way. Been listening again to old Kaleidoscope stuff from the 60's (David Lindley's old band. Psychedelia + Middle eastern + bluegrass + a bit of flamenco + a bit Indian + you get the idea). If they had a bender then they probably would have used it.
