In this video I show how to create a custom guitar pick. You can use this process for creating a pick that doesn´t exist or to recreate an existing pick you might have (like I did in this video).
In my case, I am trying to recreate a vintage pick that I love and I only have 2 but 1 broke recently... I really need a replacement before I don´t have any left!
This is a very simple, fast and cheap process - all you need is a pick (if you are recreating it), scissors and a blank sheet of celluloid film.

Cheers from Portugal!

I started making brass picks in 1982, still have my first one, I got this as a gift a few years ago...it's kinda cool, any kind of plastic seems to work...not trying to be an ass or walk on your video, your video is great...this thing is a fun toy though and I think it came from amazon

That is great but can you do a different shape? That was my aim as I have several on that you showed but I wanted a different one.
Cheers!
