When you see a resonator do you think, “Oh that’s cool. But I don’t really play slide.” I did too. High action, slide to the fifth fret then then 12th.
We don’t “set up for slide”. 9/10 of my customers say “I play with my fingers, sometimes with a flatpick, and play some slide.” They need a guitar that can do all the things in all the tunings.
This can be done. Jacking the action way up is the lazy way and it makes your guitar a one trick pony that only comes out when you feel like thwacking on something. That’s not inspiration.
