Well I assume it's rare because this guy is charging $25 for one! http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-GUITAR-PICKS-FENDER-RED-NYLON-PICK_W0QQitemZ250158273719QQihZ015QQcategoryZ20831QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem I have had my pick (a 0.73mm) for over 10 years at least & it does sound better than any others I have tried. I can hear more difference with changing picks than with some pickups I have swapped. I like it much better than celluloid picks. My second favourite is probaly the Dunlop Standard Nylon but this "vinatge" Fender pick sounds better to me. Crisper. I am assuming it's due to the smooth texture. Has anybody tried the Dunlop Nylon Glow or the Dava Control or the Herco Nylons? All are nylon picks that seem to be smooth rather than slightly dimpled like the Dunlop Standard Nylons. I'll probably just end up buying these to try but if anyone has any experiences with these it woukd be good to know. Better yet, anyone got a source for these "vintage" picks but without the price tag? Cheers.
