Sound Quality
Hard flatpicked single note slide lead lines have a sweet rasp. Fingerpicked country blues slide has great weep.. Uptempo fingerpicked slide sounds percussive and funky,though it can be thin sounding if hit hard (get a ribbon mic for this). This guitar sounds way better with a slide than played regular. It's OK regular, just so much nicer slid. Once again, when you're recording, NO RATTLES. 
It's steel. Don't set it by your blowtorch.
General Comments
If they would change that damn headstock I'd give it a 9. It stays in tune, sounds great, looks way cool, and records well. If it was stolen I'd buy 2 so I'd have a backup. For the money you can't beat this,though I haven't tried Recording King's brass style O. Next year I'll probably buy a tricone and do a side by side test
