I can't believe you said that, as I thought the same thing after getting the guitar, it would be great to set it up for slide work. Also I have mine tuned to open G for my Black Crowes fix! Good stuff!!Me too Seth! I love my 3 bucker SG 3!!! I mostly use it tuned to open G - it's killer for slide work too! It'd be my #1 axe - but my R9 holds that position - firmly!
