Thanks a lot fellas!
Yeah Rusty, I'm a Sonny fan. I play most of my slide stuff on lap steel, so when I play bottleneck I tend to overdo fretting behind the slide. I sure do enjoy it though.

Love the low end.

Did you just put fatter strings on it or what? New nut??? Do tell!

Is that a baritone neck on the tele or did you just tune down?

It's a regular scale length with REAL heavy strings - I had to put a different tuner on for the low string...I couldn't fit the string through the Sperzel I originally had on there. I should put a new nut on, but I rarely play that guitar, so I let it go.
