I've decided to set up my Tokai AST 56 Strat for slide and I'd appreciate any tips on how to get the best out of a Strat specifically for slide. I've been playing standard tuning for years but only dabbled with a bit of acoustic slide. Now I play a lot of electric blues and want to explore electric slide. The gat is a pretty good Japanese Strat copy, based on a 1956 Strat, with alder body, maple neck, vintage style bridge and all that. It has a slightly brittle glassy sound, so could do with warmer pickups, but acoustically it resonates fine. The 7.25" fretboard radius doesn't seem ideal for slide, but I'm adjusting my technique around it, and I guess you could compensate for that by adjusting the saddles and maybe cutting a new nut so that the string radius is flatter than the fretboard radius. (Buying a guitar with a flatter radius isn't an option right now.) I use a glass bottleneck which is literally cut from the neck of a wine bottle, and it has a slight curve which compensates to some extent. I've swapped my usual 10s out for 11s and it sounds far better for slide (meatier and chimier), and the action has raised a little, but other than that I haven't changed the action or done anything else.
