I tend to prefer playing slide lap style. I play a Regal square neck in traditional bluegrass "high G" tuning. Got it from Elderly 10-12 yrs ago. I upgraded it with a spun cone, aluminum spider, and a better bridge insert. Its no Sheerhorn, but it sounds pretty good. I also have a Chandler 6 str lap steel. I started out on C6 tuning with it, but kinda gave up on that, its an unusual tuning and I never really got comfortable with it. So I strung it the same as my Regal, GBDGBD.bluegrass style.
One of these days Id like to get a round neck metal body of some kind.
