Since the sound of the cone is what you're after, the body acts more like a speaker cabinet than on a conventional guitar. I like to use ordinary phosphor bronze roundwounds with a .54 on the bottom, .24 wound G and I replace the top E with a .15 or.16. This way I can take it up to EADGBE and not wreck the neck. And Jim Dunlop Moonshine ceramic slides. Hope this helps.

(They were also at two different stores, and I wasn't looking to buy)

Everything on the guitar is top notch. The cone is great. An unbeatable stock cone in my opinion. They come set up with ebony capped Beard saddles as well.

Mine arrived from Music 123 with really low action and lite strings. I would suggest ordering some saddle blanks if you are going to use it for slide. At least bump up the gauge to an 11 or 12.

Beard Mahogany Resos are laminate and the cones have a deep characterstic. A very mid-rangey, fat tone with a lot of sustain. Deeper and darker tonal range than the chimey high-end Quarterman equipped resos.

I love mine.
