No stock photos here...*The pick shown is the actual pick that you will receive, both side are shown.* Made of Caribbean Rosewood, also known as (Chechen), a very beautiful, dense & durable exotic hardwood. This premium handcrafted guitar pick was shaped & sanded independently, it features a concave thumb groove on each side to ensure a firm grip, & to also give the pick an incredible feel of control. This pick measures approx. 1-1/4” or 32 mm long X 1-1/8" or 28 mm wide, it is about 3 mm thick at the thickest part of the pick, but it feels thinner due to the thumb grooves, the pick tapers down to a thickness of about 1 mm at the tip, designed with the guitar player in mind for comfort & playability, this pick is treated with a special oil blend, for lasting protection I let the pick soak in the oil to ensure that the pick is deeply penetrated, I then seal the pick with a natural bees wax paste & hand rub the pick for a smooth & silky finish, while the rough sanded areas keep their grip for comfort & control, & if you perspire or moisten your fingertips, it will actually improve your grip. For some guitarists It may take a while to get used to playing with a wooden pick, but every guitar player that I know, once they discover the the true tones that my handmade wood picks employ, well they just simply can't live without their hardwood guitar picks. They also make excellent gifts! Thanks for looking!
