Nope. That honor went to Alice Stuart long before Bonnie was doing 
it. And Alice may have been preceeded by Sister Rosetta Tharpe (not 
sure if she ever played slide on that white Strat of hers). Did 
Jessie Mae Hemphill ever play slide on a Strat?

Btw, Alice has just released a brand new CD called "Freedom," 
produced by Jim Gaines for Country con Fusion Records.
