Made with a mix of domestic & exotic hardwoods, curly maple, African padauk, black walnut, Douglas fir, and Gabon ebony, five very beautiful, dense & durable exotic & domestic hardwoods. No stock photos here...the pick shown is the actual pick you will receive.
This custom handcrafted guitar pick was meticulously crafted with the aforementioned mix of woods, it features a laminated strip of deep black Gabon ebony in the center with a very thin strip of black walnut & Douglas fir right next to the ebony, some African padauk & bright white curly maple finish off the outer edges of this intricately made, yet simple design ultra premium guitar pick. Concave rough sanded thumb grooves on each side provide a superior grip that enables the guitarist to really explore new highs in guitar playing. This pick measures approx. 1-1/4” or 32 mm long X just over 1" or 26 mm wide, it is about 2.8 mm thick at the thickest part of the pick, but feels & plays thinner due to the thumb grooves on each side, the pick tapers down to a thickness of about 1 mm at the tip, & was designed with the guitarist in mind for comfort & playability, it 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 apply a natural bees wax paste & hand rub the pick for a smooth & silky finish, & if you perspire or moisten your finger tips, it will actually improve your grip. It may take a while to get used to playing with a wooden pick, but every guitar player that I know, simply can't live without their hardwood guitar picks. So why not take your playing to new extremes with the unmatched performance & true tones that my handmade Artisan wood picks employ. They also make excellent gifts! Thanks for looking!

GABON EBONY - Diospyros Crassiflora
The tree is native to Gabon and grows throughout Southern Nigeria, Cameroon, and Zaire .
Gabon Ebony is said to be "the blackest wood in the world," although it does sometimes contain brown highlights. The wood is quite hard, heavy, and dense, the combination of jet-black appearance and hardness makes it a particular favorite among musical instrument makers , the wood is widely used to make keys for pianos and harpsichords, as well as fingerboards for guitars, violins, cellos, and oboes. Ebony wood has been coveted by wood artisans for literally thousands of years; in fact, some carved pieces have been discovered in Ancient Egyptian tombs. The wood's distinct coloring and ability to polish beautifully have kept it highly sought after through the ages.

AFRICAN PADAUK - Pterocarpus Soyauxii
The tree is native to - Central and West Africa.
Depending on the species, the heartwood is bright orange-red to blood red, and the sapwood is grayish-white. With age and exposure to sunlight, it turns deep maroon. Quartersawn wood features a pronounced ribbon stripe. African Padauk is sometimes called vermillion. The grain is irregular to wavy. It has a moderately coarse texture with large pores. This wood possesses good strength, is flexible, shock resistant and is resistant to compression and dents, padauk is a world class beautiful exotic hardwood.

CURLY MAPLE - Acer Saccharum
The tree is Native to North America – All along the Northern United States and throughout Canada. Curly maple is really not a species, but actually a description of a figure in the grain. Curly maple occurs most often in soft maples, but is also seen in hard maples. The heartwood is typically a light tan to reddish brown color and, of course, features a pronounced grain pattern. The sapwood is usually light cream colored with a reddish tint. Curly maple is a durable, hard, and dense wood, which carves and turns exceptionally well, and finishes very nicely. Curly maple is also referred to as tiger maple, flame or fiddleback maple.

AMERICAN BLACK WALNUT
The tree is Native to, primarily the Eastern United States.
The sapwood is creamy white and may be three inches wide. Heartwood is a rich chocolate brown or purplish brown in color, with a dull sheen. Black walnut is normally straight grained and is noted for its beautiful grain character, producing a beautiful figure variation. Over the years the wood develops a lustrous patina. It is one of the only true dark brown domestic species, so it has a large following of devoted woodworkers that enjoy its rich color, and ease of use.

DOUGLAS FIR - Pseudotsuga Menziesii
The Douglas fir is not a true fir at all, nor a pine or spruce. It is a distinct species named after Archibald Menzies, a Scottish physician and naturalist who first discovered the tree on Vancouver Island in 1791, and David Douglas, the Scottish botanist who later identified the tree in the Pacific Northwest in 1826. Douglas Fir is North America's most plentiful softwood species, & is a very beautiful and versatile wood that has been successfully used since the 1800's as the wood of choice for so many home building and remodeling projects.
