Some folks called and requested a pick that was just like the Chicken Picker except just a bit wider. More thumb grip. So, the V-Pick Fusion was born…
A good buddy of mine named Chris Bernard came up with the F-hole idea and the name.
Jazz III players will especially love this one. This pick is fantastic for all kinds of playing and all kinds of guitars. My Strat, Les Paul, PRS and 335 all sound and play amazing with this pick! It is small enough to tuck away in your knuckle or between your fingers and yet not as small as some of the jazz picks I have played with. It really does surprize me how GOOD this pick feels! The 1.5mm has a lot of snap and bite to the sound. Really a pretty flat EQ comes off this pick. It is an even and consistent sound and yet still has the very full spectrum that V-Picks are known for.
The Sapphire Blue is just a knock out! Please know that V-Picks are heat treated and then flame buffed. So, with this blue material, if you hold it up in the light, you will be able to see the heat marks from the flame. I like to call them “flame broiled”. I consider it to be the mojo in these guitar picks. This treatment, by the way, makes our picks last longer, slip over the string faster as well. It also give the edge a much better surface than a pick that is just cut or buffed on a buffer wheel as all other acrylic picks out there on the market. This is just one thing that makes V-Picks Guitar Picks the best picks on this planet!
Billy Gibbons Signature Model Guitar Pick by V-PICKS was designed with and for Billy Gibbons in the V-PICKS shop here in Nashville.
If you are a ZZ Top fan or if you know one, then check this out! Billy Gibbons now plays the V-PICKS Tradition Lite Ghost Rim guitar pick! It sports Billy’s likeness that his tech Elwood Francis drew for him. We leave it unbuffed on the edges (Ghost Rim) for that snap, growl and attitude.
I do want to say a couple of words about this man. One time we were having lunch together. He noticed two people at another table that recognized him but did not want to interrupt his lunch. He excused himself, walked across the room, handed each of them a ZZ Top key ring, shook their hands and then came back to finish his meal. THAT is just one of the many reasons he is still on top! He is one of the coolest guys I know. When you talk to Billy, he listens to every word you say. He then reacts to every word you say. He is a real, kind, smart, caring person.View full product details

Ghost Rim –
Legendary guitarist, Ed King, an original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, co-wrote the hit song “Sweet Home Alabama” And, it’s his voice you can hear counting off the tune before launching into his famous Stratocaster riff.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee 2006.
Ed has played with sea shells for over 30 years now. He has recently retired them and has chosen this V-Pick to play exclusively. It is a great honor to present to you and the world his new model…
If you are a Lynyrd Skynyrd or Ed King fan, you will want one of these! You may want two. One to play with and the other to save and collect. I know I am going to put a few of them away for myself, for sure.
Ed King was VERY influential in my playing and career. Not only was his work instrumental in helping to shape my style and sound,
Ed has chosen this very model as his favorite V-Pick. I guess I got it right! I cannot tell you how much this means to me to have Ed in our corner playing V-Picks. Not only is he a fine guitarist and brilliant song writer, he is also a sweetheart of a guy.
So, again, it gives me great pleasure to present to you the Ed King V-PICK Signature Model.View full product details
