the other thread about the pick/string relationship had me thinking. for years i used a 'min'd' pick. it was made from agate and was a non traditional shape in that it was longer and narrower than a regular pick. does anyone remember these? eventually the ones that i had were either broke or stolen and i have several fabricated by a lapidary that cost me a small fortune. now they are all gone as well. i'm currently using those jim dunlop stubby picks. they are OK, but don't have the tone that the stone picks have and i certainly like the unorthodox shape of the min'd pick. sooo..... does anyone still use these or have the foggiest idea what i'm talking about? does anyone have a supply of these that they would like to share or know of someone that can fabricate them for a reasonable amount of $$$?
