    I went to a local music store and found these! 50 cents a piece!

    That seems high, but the last time I bought picks they were three for a quarter.

    No offence Brother, but the 1956 Fender Vibrolux for $100 bucks kind of beats the pants off your budget picks;)

    I get those for .25 a piece. Less if I buy a bunch and the owner is there.

    He's an elderly gentleman and he likes to chat. The more you chat with him, the bigger the discount.

    If you grow up in farm country, you'll understand. Go to buy hay, those old farmers are more interested in you taking time to talk than they are in your money. If you're in a hurry, you're going to pay a premium! :D

    Are you questioning the price of the picks? Here you cannot buy a decent pick for less than US$ 1.00...

    Guess I should've stated this is probably of most interest for Buchanan/Gatton fans. They don't make the white 358s any more and they go for big money whenever they pop up online. I thought it was a good deal at least

    Wow, seems high to me as well. But maybe I'm thinking of the store brand and not Fender, which I like. Extra heavy tortoise ones

    Heh...My dad used to use those little Fender heavys. "Jazz picks" he called them. Brings back memories.

    Likewise. I was unaware of that.

    I'll be at the local guitar store tomorrow. Perhaps I'll score a bunch of NOS white 358's.

    I bought a sack of flat picks and a sack of Dunlop Tort Shell thumb picks about 4-5 years ago and still have a bunch.
    I don’t go anywhere to lose a pick, and I’ve had two thumb picks break, but that’s about it.
    But now that you mention it, they do seem to be a lot more expensive now.
