The Craftsman socket wrenches aren't contoured like a Stevens or a bullet bar, but they are cheap and effective. And should you decide to shift to bottleneck slide, with the slide worn on a digit, you can get a precise fit with a Craftsman.
I had a long affair with a nice Dobro squareneck, but I never got used to that big silver eye staring up at me. Traded it for... something worthless & forgettable. Now of course I wish I had it back.

They come in about any size you might want. You'll have to keep it clean and wipe it down with an oily cloth to keep it from rusting.
