This product may do what it says, but I doubt it. You gotta hand it to these product developers, they can always find something new to sell to guitarists. They know guitarists will do almost anything to improve their playing or tone. They also know that guitarists are firm believers in "mojo" - thats all you really need to sell a product to a guitarist. Plus, a product as cheap as this will find even the most skeptical consumer amongst their customers. Hell, I may even try it laugh.gif

If it "sticks to the strings" as they keep claiming, wouldn't that screw up our playing? ohmy.gif

I'm surprised they didn't go the full 100% and have a half naked chick modelling the pick....

I know a few people on GMC who would have bought one then... laugh.gif

If you will never lose a pick again, why do they sell a 10-pack? laugh.gif

Nah, I'll stick to my good old fashioned 20 ct coin cool.gif

"Magneta Pick is a neodymium magnetized gutiar pick, combining the power of magnetism with guitar playing! With this neodymium magnet, your MagnetaPick will adhere to your strings, post, microphone stand, or most metal surfaces! This way you will never lose another guitar pick again!"

Neodymium??? ohmy.gif ohmy.gif

I'm surprised no one picked up on the most outrageous claim: that the magnet reorients the blood cells in your hand so they flow through the blood vessels with ease and carry more oxygen. I know blood contains iron, but please...

I do know people that claim that wearing a magnetic bracelet makes them feel better. It could just be a placebo effect.

What do you guys think?
