    Not at that price! $75 starting bid!

    I actually have several - a few of the different shapes, some of each gauge from the '60's (script logo) and '80's (shield logo), and some new ones from the The Guild Store. The new ones are pretty much the same as the ones from the '80's just a little different "tortoise shell" color.

    BTW, talk about inflation! I bought a "crystal box" of 72 standard shape '80's Guild celluloid picks on eBay back in '08 for $25!

    I just sold these yesterday. They were too thick. Nice picks but too thick for me.

    After years of being pretty indifferent to picks, I settled on Dunlop Ultex .73s based on the noticeable clarity they brought to my acoustic guitars. The only downside is that they are practically invisible against anything other than a white surface. Drop one and you may never find it again.

    The pick gods giveth back this weekend....Saturday when I opened the dryer door my favorite red Dunlop gel fell out, and yesterday when I moved my keyboard in my office the old red GC pick was underneath (crappy cheap plastic give away but I like it). Both times I thought to myself “oh...there you are”

    We were in Colorado and New Mexico this past summer. There were at least 3 or 4 Native American artisans at the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe selling guitar picks.

    I picked up these:



    I don't use a pick too often, and I'm not sure about these as picks, but I certainly like the way they look.
