I have a 2010 bullet let up for slide. Best money I ever spent for a second guitar. Neck is beafy and feels nice.

What are you looking to play on it? More of a pup question-
I just got rid of a mik tele cause the neck wasn't any good. Truth is, it reminded me how much I dislike cheap guitars. But I get there are a pile out there being played just fine - my tele might have made a ok slide guitar.

looking to raise the action and stick a set of 13`s on it, so the neck quality isnt crucial, looking to play some bottle kneck blues style on it...

I suggest trying to pick up an epi g400. They usually can be had for 100-200 bucks and make great slide guitars. '66 tributes have a very thin neck which may or may not help using a slide depending on your hand size. They also come with some pretty decent pups.

The G-400 is a great slide guitar, total access to the fretboard and fairly lightweight as well. I found a 3 year old G-400 at a local store for $180 a few years back, I sure couldn't pass up that deal!

If you want a cheap guitar to slap around on, look at Rondo/Agile stuff.

Rondo Music Electric Guitars

I think a cheap Tele from Rondo would make a cool slide guitar-also their Les Paul Jr. copy with a P-90 would do the job very well, I'm a P-90 fan though...:twisted:

Well I bought one, a 66 tribute with thin neck and alnico pups in perfect condition for $150.00 with a setup..

Sent from my spaceship using mind control.

Jimmy Page used a Danelectro for slide. Those are pretty cheap.

+1 on this.

Look out for a Korean made one if you cant stretch to an original.

I got my 1998 U2 for £50

Superb slide guitar IMO
