Guitar Picks

Guistar Picks, manufacturers of custom-made guitar picks, will introduce Wednesday a gold-colored Elvis pick stamped with “The King’s” thumb print as duplicated from his military records.

“Yes, we replicated his actual thumb print provided by Elvis Presley Enterprises utilizing our patented enhancement process,” said Guistar spokesman Rich Mackey.

The etched image on the other side of the limited-edition, ready-to-be-strummed pick celebrates the 40th anniversary of Presley’s televised ’68 comeback special.

Suggested retail is $19.99, which includes the pick, an interchangeable necklace or key chain pick holder, and a certificate of authenticity.

The product debuts in Memphis as part of Elvis Week celebrations that draw thousands of fans to the singer’s former hometown.

Once word gets out about the Presley estate’s endorsement, “we’re confident the rest of the celebrity music world will want to join the bandwagon,” Mackey said. “Elvis has already paid off by helping us secure new deals with Conway Twitty’s estate, Carl Perkins’ estate and Sun Records, Elvis’ first Memphis recording label.”

Judging from Benny Scott's reaction this is an Elvis related product that has some connection to the original. Unlike the ducks etc. Not such a bad idea after all.

I'm waiting until they bring one out with Little Jimmy Osmond's fingerprint on.

To me it's not ridicoulos at all. I've been an Elvis-fan for over more than 50 years, and as a rhythm-guitarplayer I find it great to play the guitar with a pick having Elvis' picture on it.Always El.
