    I've never met a guitarist that uses this pick. Does anyone out there play this shape? Which end(s) do you use? How do you use it?

    Uh, oh!
    I think those Dunlop Shark fins wouldn't work for me.
    they're not the real thing, they have to be from Sweden.

    This guy gets my vote simply for having the KISS Destroyer album poster right behind him.

    Sold!

    Thin sound, full sound, raspy sound, take your pick. ;)

    Behind my beard.
    I used these for *years* when I was starting out - they seemed really comfortable in my young hands.

    Now that my hands are biggerer, I use tiny Jazz IIIs.

    There is no logic sometimes...
