    an ice pick?
    a lock pick?
    a nitpick?

    seriously ... my guitar teacher used to have a marble one. i used a graphite one (coated with nylon). I prefer pretty thick picks. so, why not ask about mikael's picks?

    I think they were black Dunlops 0.7x, don't really remember what's the number. Medium, though.

    Come on, give the guy some rest, at least it's not some "best album" or something about Mendez' hair

    If he uses anything other than the Jazz IIIs, he fails. :)

    I have one pick from Mike, I think it's this one (the big one on the left), except the one I have is a heavy gauge and not medium.

    I also have one from Peter, which is a standard 1.0mm Tortex.

    Damn right it's a stupid question. Mikael uses the Pick of Destiny, no doubt about it!

    I would agree wholeheartedly... except that he doesn't fail.

    These picks must be famous or something because my bro just got some of these with the advise of other guitar players saying shit like "They'll make you sound so good" or something to that effect. I've tried them out for a bit, I just like the fact that their a thick gauge.

    I have no clue, but check out some Dunlop Ultex picks, and you're unlikely to want to use anything else.
