This is out of the blue, but many guitarists have a favorite pick, right? It’s got to be this pick! Yet I think there are those who are just starting out, having a difficult time deciding on a pick, wondering why there are so many different types, shapes & sizes! I’m actually like that, and my “favorite” pick keeps changing.
Therefore, this time I’ll introduce some cute, stylish picks in my opinion, based on my biases and prejudices! For those just starting out with the guitar, and wondering "... which kind of pick should I choose", read through this by all means. The main pick shapes include teardrop types and triangle types, and even with just these two shapes, some people hesitate. However, there are designs that are cute and cool, and you can choose based on your fashion intuition!
When I had just begun playing guitar, there are many walls I came up against. (By the way, the first thing I struggled with was the common F chord. I cried out when couldn’t hold the bar chord.)
If another one of the walls you come up against is picks, don’t you feel that it might be possible to get over the wall? So let’s take a look at picks!
A cute pick with an illustration of a small bird. This can be used in any scene, with both acoustic and electric guitar!
A pick with a crocodile illustration printed on it. All I can say is that the face is cute! The color differs depending on the thickness of the pick, and they use a unique color. They have a matte finish that is easy to grip making them easy to use.
A marble patterned pick with a mix of deep Bordeaux, Navy, White and Black. The Fender logo shines in gold, and though it’s cheap in price, it also has a luxurious feel! The size and hardness are standard and easy to use.
Following Fender, next is a GIBSON pick! The GIBSON logo in gold on a black background. It's luxurious, simple and cool...! It is made of a slightly soft material.
A pick with a beautiful blue gradation. It is transparent, and cool! It is also a heavy gauge and easy to grip.
A cute pick with a flower illustration. It is a light, gentle color like that of a picture book, which is rare in picks. This is not its intended original use, but it's a cute design could be worn as an accessory such as a necklace or earrings!
A pick with the guitar/amp manufacturer SUPRO logo. With 4 different colors according to the hardness, the design that evokes an American atmosphere.
The signature pick of bassist, 345 from Ring Toshite Sigure. A loosely drawn cat, but exquisitely cute! A must see for Ring Toshite Sigure fans. And those who like cats?
This is a signature model for Kenji Todaka, guitarist for Art School and MONOEYES. Not only is the design cool, but it is also an excellent pick that uses a slip-proof material that does not wear easily.
This is the last one. It is a signature model for X JAPAN's HIDE. It uses his image color, Shocking Pink, and the illustrations of the guitartist's photo is stylish and cool! FERNANDES has also released other HIDE model picks. If you are interested, please check them out.
