After posting threads in the BadDog I was humbled by people posting that they admired my Set Up / Modding skills. I never looked at things from that angle. Someone mentioned that I should post some Slide Videos... I'm gonna look into doing that. So... This is where I ended up on the FA Strat Slide Set Up. I was lucky enough to kind of apprentice under a skilled slide player / guitar tech gentleman. He was an old man that spent years playing in Honky Tonks. Great Slide and Pedal Steel player. I learned about setting up a guitar based on your playing style / technique. I learned early on from him that even string guage choice..Heavy, Medium, Light... he made them all sound thru his amp. He adjusted his playing technique based on the guitar and strings he was playing. It blew my mind. He could make 9 guage string sound just as powerful as a 13 guage string. Same for the wound strings. My take away from being around him was that you could use 9 guage High E strings as well as a 13 or 15 guage High E string when playing slide based on your choice of your slide and playing technique / style.
