Australian custom guitar pick manufacturer Grover Allman recently offered me some custom Guitar Lifestyle picks. They offer multiple styles, colors, and gauges. I chose the polycarbonate style in black, 1.00mm. You can see a photo of what they look like above. I think they turned out really well!
I’ve had the picks now for a number of weeks, and to my surprise, I actually use these more than my normal Jazz III or 1.00mm Tortex picks. The only nitpick I have is that the top of some of the picks still have a nub from where they were connected to a plastic casing while, I presume, they were being printed. That being said, I don’t feel the nub at all when I’m playing. Furthermore, I really like the feel of these. If you’re looking for some custom picks, check out Grover Allman.
Awesome picks, those came out really nice!
Thanks…I think so, too!
I’m very disappointed. Where’s the online merchandise store? How can I get my fingers on official Guitar Lifestyle picks? This is worse than the iPhone 4 pre-order debacle.

The tab on the top of the pick means that the picks are injection molded, and then have not been tumbled or finished. Generally it considered a cheap type of guitar pick.
I have been getting custom guitar picks from http://www.steveclayton.com for years. They are all very high quality picks, and you won’t see that annoying tab on their stuff.
