After two and a half years of playing a Squire, I finally have the money to upgrade. Now, rather than smash the Squire into a thousand pieces, I think I'm going to put it to a more practical use and set it up as a slide guitar. I know that you have to adjust the action, but what else should I do to make it easier to play slide on? Thanks in advance.

The basic rule is just to have the action really high. So wack the bridge really high to make slide play alot easier.

That's about the only rule I can think of Enjoy.

Ok thanks.


I was just wondering if maybe there was an ideal string gauge or something. But whatever, high action works for me.

Hmm, it might sound really cool with some really fat strings on it. Maybe .12's or something. Afterall, that'd be just like playing on an acoustic. That could sound really good actually.

Oh yeah, use a glass slide for a smoother tone and a brass one for more harsh sounding slide. I prefer the brass ones
