I bought this slide bar with my Rogue lap steel because I knew the bottle neck was not going to be heavy enough to play this steel the way I like to play it. YES, you can use it on your resonator guitar it will work. This is best for playing your axe if it is a 6 string. IF you have a 10 or 12 string pedal steel this to shy of the length you will want for that. those slides are a bit longer. Anyhow i liked the price of this one and I like the shape because the way I play a lap steel I feel it gives me better control for the style of music I play. I am using an open C 6th tuning. Look up a C 6 chord in your guitar chord book and that is the tuning I use. This slide has a good weight and you do not need to use much hand pressure. Let the weight of the slide work for you. Some steel players have other slides or tone bars and some steel players call these things. kinda like picks for guitar players. IF you are going to play steel or Dobro (resonator guitar) you will need a slide. I just happen to own this one, i like it and it works for me. Try it and you may like it too. Make sure you wipe it down after playing so it will last a lot of years and still be smooth.

    Comments about Golden Gate Stevens Steel Bar for Resonator:

    Husband played electric guitar as a 20 something and used a steel bar. Now as a 60 something he wants to relearn. He's forgotten most things but he does remember and likes the feel of this bar.

                Comments about Golden Gate Stevens Steel Bar for Resonator:

                I'm sure this is a great tool for those who can use it. I bought it for my 82-year-old brother along with a dobro, and found he can't hold onto it because of having had both thumbs and a finger cut off and reattached. I think he has ordered a different one from Musician's Friend. He plans to make a wooden holder to attach to this one so he can use it, too. Just hoping he doesn't cut off more fingers in the process.

                Although I don't have a lot of experience of playing the dobro, I must say you can not go wrong when you buy this slide.
