1 1/4″ tip to tip –
This pick is just incredible! Tone, feel and looks. That is what the Hot Tamale by V-PICKS is all about. It is one tasty treat that you will be glad you added to your plate.
It starts out as the Large Pointed. We spice it up a bit and then put back into the oven for the grip holes. This is just about the strongest tactile experience you will ever have with a pick.
The sound is BIG. Strong mids. Lots of bass and a smooth, singing high end that is not overpowering. Very distinct and intentional attack. This pick will make you stand out in the mix very well.
Also a fantastic mandolin pick. I have had many old timers come to our NAMM booth and say they LOVE the Large Pointed V-PICKS on their mandolins. One old guy said “I only play Hawksbill Tortoise Shell picks. But this one is the stuff!” and he held up a V-PICK for all to see.
Same fast, gliding action as all the other V-PICKS. And the same BUILT-IN NON-SLIP Technology, but this one also adds the grip holes.
It seems to me, the more you play this pick, the better it plays and sounds after it gets broken in to your style and feel. It is like it tailors itself to you.
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
