The thing is getting the pick even on both sides. My little 12 year old brother helped me. biggrin.gif

Just sharpened this one. My brother couldn't believe it. Show I demonstrated it for him. I wear this pick around my neck, so I HAD to get it straight. biggrin.gif

EDIT: Still not perfect, but it's close enough. happy.gif

Great. Unfortunately, that won't work with me, I lost my pick every 2 months.
Any device against pick loss, like pick alarm?

I loose my picks too, but find them again in the most oddest places like inside the back of my amp and even inside my pillow case!

Pick Alarm: Get a pet ferret, they go around stealing everything and hiding it under your bed. Find 'lost' wallets, shoes, socks, and guitar picks! Getting it back is the tricky bit, do it when he's not looking ... else your pick might end up too sharp trying to tug it off him!

I buy my picks in 100-packs these days. It saves money compared to buying them seperately and you don't ave to worry about not having any picks for months (takes some time to loose 100 picks^^)
