I purchased this guitar about 2 months ago, I know my way around guitars and resonators. This is a very nice guitar. I didn't set it up for slide playing, maybe I will, it just sounds so good on some old Kinks stuff, flat or finger picking. It's a really nice guitar, I was and am still impressed with the quality, it's really that good. Maybe in the future they will make one joined at the 14th fret. I will buy it immediately.
This is my first resonator guitar, and I must say, I was disappointed in the quality or lack there of. Within the first ten minutes of playing the Michael Kelly Bayou, one of the sound hole covers fell off. Also some of the screws that hold on the resonator cover were not screwed in all the way. I felt like I had bought a second hand guitar.
