It's been a while since I posted. I've got a wild hair idea of making a tapping guitar designed like a lap steel. A lap steel is about 22.5 in scale but was wondering if I go up to a 25.5 aprox guitar scale, 6 string built on a 2x6 frame or something close to that, what type of string gauge set should I use for easy tapping.

I want to build something easy on the fingertips but have a mellow sound.

I have built a mt dulcimer but want to try something else. Nothing fancy, if it works well then version 2 can be a bit more  detailed.

Thanks for any advice
