    I'd use the plastic clip off the bread bag before I bought one of those.

    Those are cheaper than tortoise, though.
    It is hard to beat tortoise picks used with acoustic guitars...

    $8.00 US for a shoelace $20.00 US for a piece of ham bone with a hole in it
    and you don't get the piece the hole was made with....:confused:


    and I bet they sell a million of them...boys we are in the wrong business...mind you we can at least be comforted with knowing people don't call us a...

    Sorry guys... I've got a couple of Brossard picks, and I love them.

    Rip off? No, you get what you paid for.

    Not worse than buying a guitar for more than it's worth...

    I think picks are a little too mobile to spend a lot of money on, them and lighters.

    You get a lotta bone for $20!
    But I guess if I was taking the time to carve picks out of bone, I'd want $20 for my trouble.
