Well at the beginning of last month i had about twenty picks. i lost about two and gave 3 crappy ones to my friends but whatever. then i cleaned my room and found about four. so i had about 19 picks left. now, just over a month later i have 3. Thesse frickin pick gnomes are working overtime.

so does the pit have any Pick Gnome related stories?

This one time, a pick gnome came and stole all of my picks and traded them to the search bar for some good threads.

Beat this:

Last month I went out and bought 4 packets of Jazz III's (which had about 12 each in them) which cost me like $40AUS all up.

I take one out of the packet, go to play, leave the packets on my table, come back 20 minutes later and they're gone.

I've never seen them since. And there was noone around to steal them which pisses me off, because I'd like to blame it on someone .

Don't give them out to your friends!
You will regret it!
Oh and make sure your friends arent stealing them!

The gnomes tore my pick case off my guitar and fed it to my dog :|

try having 4 pick holders each of them can hold about 8 of my favourite picks, Dunlop Tortex .50mm, and now I'm cleaning out my apartment and i've only found one pick holder, but it only has 2 Tortex picks, and one of those jumbo bass picks...which I don't own a bass pick, so I have no clue on how it got there....DAMN PICK GNOMES!!

Actually yeah, I've seen them at the local shop, I think they are more for show though as I imagine it would scratch the hell out of your finish and simply murder your string life.

Protip: Don't buy too many, or you'll gett wasteful and just throw them about! Wich equals fewer pics

Underpants gnomes are the worst.



Yes, and the upgraded underpant gnomes can steal your underpants while you are wearing them, they make the southpark gnomes look like pussies.

Pick gnomes are no big deal. In my house Tremolo-arm-gnomes stole both of my tremolo bars.

It sucks, even if i never use tremolo bars for nothing more than messing around with feedback.

yesh they are, I got drunk once, and woke up with my trousers on, but no underwear, even though I was wearing some, have never been able to find that pair of boxers ever


and once I bought ten of the Jim Dunlop tech pics, 5 brass, 5 aluminium(don't like the aluminium ones, they make my hands silver) and in 2 days, I had lost all but one of the brass ones

I have three picks, no more - no less - always three. there's no reason behind it, if i buy more I loose all but three of them, if I can't find one of the three suddenly one will turn up.

I think the gnomes around my way have some sort of equilibrium going on.

The southpark gnomes did steal the underpants while they were wearing them.
