    My wife got me a cool gift, a puncher that turns old credit cards, hotel cards or any plastic material into guitar picks.

    thats pretty cool. Do the embossed letters and numbers give you better gription on the picks? I play hard and the picks tend to move about on me a bit. This might be one of those things that has added bonus features like that.

    Agreed, too many picks flip into the soundhole, especially on warm summer evenings when hands perspire more... or is it from the cold beer. No matter. I thought the same thing on the letters, but I like my picks on the thinner side. Like my wimmins, I like a softer touch...>>

    Plastic cards come in different thicknesses, like a AAA card or membership cards. Hmmmm.

    I can't guarantee the lifespan of this thing, seems well built but i am sure the punch blade will wear in short order. I have seen the tops of plastic coffee cans used for thinner picks. Still pretty cool.

    Pretty neat. Now all you have to do is buy a guitar and take lessons.

    Another guitar? 4 isn't enough? You know you are right, I am always game for a new one.
    Lessons? I suppose it wouldn't hurt but, No thanks, been playing just fine for 26 years.

    Ah just kidding. Got a Takamine Classic And a Schecter C1 Classic myself. Been playing for about 50 years. Now 77 years old and still can't play worth a darn.

    And that is the best use of a credit card that I have seen yet.
