Johnny has always loved a pick with a good grip to it. In teaming up with V-PICKS, he instantly found that he had a strong connection with the Tradition. So, we made it red, and the Johnny Hiland signature V-PICK was born. We Laser burn the logo and name just a bit deeper for Johnny.
Note: the updated pick does not have the grooves on it.
This pick was updated to Johnny’s specs 7/16/2017
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
