You can buy little pleck holders, they have sticky things on the back so they'll hold on to your guitar, and their spring loaded so it can hold a few picks without spilling them. Any guitar shop should be able to help you with that.

oh yeh i know the things, but ther quite bulky and ugly, i like the thing vai has cause, well its cooler lookin and easy to get to cause the plecks just stick out, i doubt its double sided tape as you can see form whan he's onstage thers like a thick plastic strip under the headstock, they look to be jammed in between the strip and the head, maybe he just screwed it on and just jammed them in?

actually Vai uses a paper holder/binder thingy, (that thing that holds papers together in a folder) and its stuck to his headstock with velcro

i remember reading it on the Vai.com forums somewhere

EDIT: about 2/3 of the way down

i know exactly what you are talking about, you can get them off ebay or on froogle, the ones i know are made by peavy and are sorta the same thing, but you can get one thats more like it,
the pics seem to have gone on ebay, but i definitely saw them, this is the peavy one, i think its what you kinda mean.....

lol since i had a thread about this question also. But you can use tape. But sometimes the pic dont like to come off when ur playing and u loose a pic, and try to get a new one as possible, then it would be make it difficult.
