    Default Gilchrist Pick

    I just won a gilchrist pick on the ebay.. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...:B:ONA:US:1157 . I dont know much about them except everyone who has one says they love em. I paid $11.00 + shipping, thats more than my beloved custom wegen, Did I pay too much? Will I love it forever? Or did I just buy the right to say I own a gilchrist and thats about it?

    You didn't win it, you bought it! But now you can say you own a Gilchrist!

    I dont mind paying too much for a pick if I like it cuz I never lose a pick, I'll go through 3 or 4 dozen sets of $10 strings on the same pick so that dont bother me as long as I like the pick.

    yeah, I've ordered them directly from Steve Gilchrist in the past for $10-12 for 3-4 picks; can't recall the exact cost/quantity but he does sell them direct.
