    Man, that is probably worth twice as much as a pick printed normally!

    It’s the new “offset” line of Tortex picks.

    Is it still under warranty? Just return it and don't try to fix it yourself. :cool:

    The offset lettering allows for a larger surface area on the pick to come in contact with the actual strings creating less coefficient of friction, more vibration, more sustain & overall better tone.

    Save that pick. Once you’ve had it for another 20 years it will be vintage and contribute even more to a superior tone.

    This is one of the new right-handed Tortex picks...yet another slight against left-handed guitar players.

    Also, that's not OCD. This is OCD. Current state of affairs:
