Hey guys I've been playing strictly slide dobro for awhile now and I was just wondering if you had any suggestions on an electric that I could get a real gritty, dirty slide from.

Well, the Danelectro 59 DC has a great slide tone. Jimmy Page used it on "In My Time of Dying" playing in an open tuning (Open A?)

EDIT: a Dobro is a resonator guitar, which is typically played with a slide.

Thanks Floyd-Lover, I'll check that out. I know I've seen a couple videos of Derek Trucks playing a Danelectro as well as Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys playing one.

Alright, I'm looking to spend no more than $1000. I'm thinking of a grittier, more distorted than Derek Trucks' tone, I also like Johnny Winter's tone.

I really love the sound of slide with p90's.

Yep. I prefer the sound of a P90 for slide as well. If grit & dirt is what you're after, that's where you'll find it easiest imho. My Eastwood Delta 6 has upgraded electronics and a sweet Suhr S90. My Tele also can do a very gritty slide.
