Modding picks - we'll have to compare notes.
I tried to simulate 12 string w/ a sandwich of thin picks around a spacer (a nickel, a washer, can't recall).
That and the pick-punch over credit cards and other random materials.

Welcome to the club.
Peace - Deeve

Did you ever try one of these? I don't know if they're still being made. I bought one shortly after I started playing as I was trying to acquire all the different pics I could get my hands on. But that's closing in on 20 years ago!

It's just a bunch of probably cut up D strings held in place by a piece of plastic and cut by an angle, so it wouldn't be impossible to make yourself.

Edit: Found one

Cool - fortunately, I found an actual 12, so I'm good...

Hi everyone.

Everytime I look information about pedals/guitar mods in general I end up clicking a thread on this forum, So it is time for me to sign in and explore a little bit more, looking foward to learn more about modding and fun stuff. 🤖🔧
How do you mod 'em? Forum sarcasm?

I, in fact, do mod mine. I like a very bright pick, in the jazz III / Fender 551 shape. Clayton Ultem is the best material, but only recently I discovered they make a Spike model, which seems to be that shape. They arrive today.

Prior to this, I have bought larger Clayton Ultems and cut 'em with scissors. While I'm at it, I leave the shoulders kinda sharp. It seems to keep the pick from spinning in my grip, and also aids when folding the pick into my palm.

Welome to the forum.

I said I mod my picks because all pedals/guitars/amps/pedalboards and everything music related I've ever had where moded in some way, except guitar picks, So it was sarcarsm in some way but after reading the comments I will absolutely start modding my guitar picks. 😂

Glad to help. That's what we're here for: to sew dissatisfaction with gear you already own. 😁

I actually do mod my own picks.

I have a pick punch. I punched this from a gift card from Universal Studios. I then drilled holes in it for grip.

Modded pick!
