Don't Mess With Texas
You Best Tread Lightly With This One
It's a pick with a venomous bite,
and an intoxicating swiftness that will keep you playing all night.
Catch One If You Can
This guitar pick is unique even by Iron Age standards.
It's only ever made once or twice a year,
and so it stands as a limited edition item.
The material itself is very similar to our (faux) Ivory series,
so it's very dense and behaves much like natural bone does.
The difference is its pearlescent snakeskin pattern
which is unique on every pick - It's striking to say the least.
To take this pick up a notch,
a neon green (glow-in-the-dark) Texas star was added,
along with 2 snakebite holes (for keychains or necklaces)
It's quite a sight to behold in dim environments
and the engravings charge quickly with direct sun & UV blacklight.
At the very least,
you'll have no problem spotting this pick wherever it may roam.
A Sound To Rattle Skulls
The point & tone on this pick is something vicious.
The extremely pointed tip,
coupled with the dense material really brings out the higher frequencies.
So this a good pick for precise leads but also works down low.
There's plenty of bite & the attack is lightning fast.
These picks are also designed with minimal beveling,
which allows them to take shape & wear down to your natural angle of playing.
Over time, they become a sort of "custom-fit" to your style of picking.

“Quality is never an accident.
It is always the result of high intention,
sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution.
It represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”
