Yea I would just repurpose a little used guitar or but a very inexpensive one. I went the other route and bought an over engineered and over priced Duesenberg Alamon - totally worth it for me. I use the Shubb steel that has the finger grooves (easier to hold) but also a sort of half bullet nose (easier to play single notes). I have a bullet and find it hard to keep hold of. Here's mine. Gotta admit it gets more admiration than play time.
