Ok, so I have a bunch of used picks that I didn't throw away because I felt like they could possibly be used for something. I got the idea of possibly using them to make custom knobs for my strat. I use Fender standard 351 picks, and I think that the same color/look of them would look cool as a knob. So does anyone know how I could go about getting these made, whether it be by myself or sending off the picks to a platstic company to make them for me specially? Thanks in advance
I'm thinking you'd have to make a mold and then melt them into it. If you have the resources you should try it. If you don't then your idea of finding a plastics company seems like it could work. Good luck either way, it's a cool idea. If you do do it, then I suggest you use the flat side of a pick for the top of the knob so that the side with Fender on it is facing up. That would look super cool.
don't lite the picks on fire thinking they will melt! BAD! BAD! BAD! IDEA! it was really bad and smelled like menthol.it went up like a dry christmas tree! then i stopped being such a pyro! lol
Not sure if the logo would work because they would most likely need a large number of picks to be able to fill the mold, but that is a cool idea, I'll keep it in mind.
