    Hello, I'm new.

    Now I have been trying to collect a mass amount of info on Richie Sambora's gear from 2007 to now. He used to use celluloid picks, but after I saw this pick, these picks don't look celluloid. Now before I go on I want to say, I am not the kind of fan that only gets what my favorite guitarist gets, I get whatever I want. And I have no plan on switching picks, because right now I am in love with Fender Medium Celluloids. So if anyone can help, it will be appreciated.

    If those pics aren't good enough, I can get much better ones

    They look like Herco nylon picks, to me.

    Another question, why are they so hard to find?

    Because they have a relativly small number of people that religiously use them, not many stores are willing to hold onto non-revolving stock (overhead). They are quite easy to get your hands on, shopping online tho ...

    It's the only pick Michael Schenker would use back in the day. I would love to try one.

    I've been using the gold ones for years. The secret to these is to flip them around and pick with the knurled grip edge. Adds great juiciness to the sound!

    sorry, but I cant really make out any of the other stuff on there ...

    someone needs to send him to clean his tech area up .. that would drive me bonkers

    And either Richie Sambora changes picks like he changes underwear, or his tech pulls every pick out of his pocket that he has jipped from everywhere else and puts on the bench ... if you notice, there is a red pick on the bench, white picks up high ... and what started the thread was the Gold Herco picks ....

    Now if you really want to know what went thru my mind ... one of the bottles looks like Lowreys Seasoning Salt (they must have a hibachi grill off stage), and another looks like the "6" from the Motel 6 chain ... shampoo maybe ... lol ....

    See what we do when its late at night??? lol ... :D

    Oh, and welcome to the forum!
