Does anyone in Austin have a Peavey Powerslide that I could check out for a few days. I'm looking for a steel I can stand up with that is 25 inch scale.

I have an Asher, but it is really, really heavy and doesn't hang right. I don't want to pay the money for the belly bar.

Any ideas?

I had a Peavey Powerslide. The cutaway puts the strings too close to your stomach (well, my stomach!). They are hollow foam core cheap bodies.
The Asher, IMO, is 10X the guitar, and the belly bar puts the strings at the perfect distance from your gut.
Obviously, just my opinion.

I have the power slide and the Robert Randolph signature model. The signature model is the better guitar with a adjustable belly bar, upgraded p/u and even a better quality strap. Both fun to play and produce a decent sound.

Keith,

I have a powerslide you could check out. I'm just north of 183 not too far from Lamar. Right now it's in dobro (GBDGBD) tuning with rather heavy strings (I think they are flatwounds--they came with it when I bought it used) but you can re-string it however you like if you want.

I'll send you a PM with my phone number.

I bought the "Robert Randolph" model, but returned it because the fretboard was so far off. Almost unplayable.

Can you buy the belly bar as an accessory or is it easy to make one? I have a Powerslide and I am still deciding if I like it. It plays and sound fine, but I am unable to play it standing up, which was my original idea.
