DeAnne - Great guitar pick. Very nicely made. Fast ship. Gave it to Rick Springfield. He loved it!

Kathleen - Love these picks! Bought both sets for gifts and they were a big hit!

Giovanna - Excellent quality. My favorite guitar picks. I have purchased these from this seller multiple times. Very happy with the product and service. It’s a pleasure to do business with this company!

JenSpence - I had to wait until after the holidays to review this. First of all, it is GORGEOUS--even more vibrant than the photos convey. Secondly, the shipping was SUPER FAST--and during the crazy holiday season, no less! Thirdly, he loves it. It is his prized pick with its own special place. Its sound is rich and beautiful--very distinctive. It's sturdy, expertly crafted, and plays like a dream. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks so much!

Charlotte - Lovely picks! I ordered one each of bone and horn for mandolin. Bone seems brighter, with horn a little mellower. Very smooth to give a nice attack. Will be ordering more at some point. Thanks!

Jillina - This is my second order of these natural picks. They are the best feeling/playing picks ever. Some for me in the set and some for gifts! Thank you - I LOVE these beautiful picks!

Tisha - My son LOVED it! Great quality. Great customer service. Arrived quick too! I wish I could give this more stars. Thank you so much!

Shiley - Got this as a gift but I love it so much I might just get one for myself! I received this very quick!

Justina - Perfect!! You guys got these to me lightning speed! I can’t wait to gift them to my mandolin playing Valentine.

Jill - Beautiful Craftsmanship, Amazing Styling! Came Much Faster than quoted. Overall, Amazing Transaction! Highly Recommend This Seller! A+++
