Ever wanted to have your picks with you? ON your guitar? Then why don't you try this super cheap, somewhat durable, doesn't leave permanent marks on your guitar, kinda crappy guitar pick holder?

You need:
duct tape

Step 1: Start

Roll out and cut about 4 inches of duct tape.
<p>creative idea</p>
I like the final result in step 9. It looks like it would be an easy grab if you needed a pick fast. The pick holder is use is called <a href="http://www.ready-pick.com" rel="nofollow">Ready Pick</a>. I mainly like it because it's a clear pad and people can't even see that there is a pick holder on my guitar.
wath kind of guitar is this?
it's a fender starcaster. it's smaller than the stratocaster.
starcasters arent smaller tham a standard strat, they are just made cheaper.
Ok thx haha
Hey that's kind of scary if you care about your gutars finish. I make a pick holder <br>that clips to your strap. I call it a Pic Stik check it out www.stickyourpick.com
id probably use masking tape or something for this step so it doesn't leave adhesive.
i will not be putting this on my les paul custom -_-
Ya, me neither.
LES PAUL!!!!! dang.... i got mine fer $25 at a garaj sale!!!
never said you had to. :P
That looks like dollar store duck tape at the mall ;D Just like that Hot Topic Pic<3 Hot Topic pwns :D Hmm the duct tape CAN leave a sticky residue which is annoying to come off, great idea though!
try packing tape youll have to put some more on every once in a while but it shouldnt leave residue
My friend has a real one of these-- plastic and everything, but it's not as messy as this. Great job, very easy to do, I might want to do this soon.
i had a plastic one... then the sticky part wasnt so sticky and it fell off
thanks that means a lot coming from an instructables celebrity :D lol
I've now put all my picks on my guitar
You know, I was in my local music store today and I saw picks that have little crazy sucker thingies on the back that stick to your guitar! But this is also a great way to store picks on a guitar, I would just put it on the back of the guitar, so I don't have a big red thing stuck to my axe.
I too have the fender starcaster. I disklike it because its just a bit teenier than other guitars
I have the same guitar as you i bought the big pack too but i was already playing acoustic.
yeah, i had an acoustic before i got my electric.
thats the way to go
wow. i wish my sister was nice like that. i had to buy mine myself. -___- it was worth it though. :D
I have that same guitar, but in red. I bought it off my sister for $50.00. It was originally $273.00. My sister is really nice to me.
also, an alternative to duct tape would be poster board or some other thick paper. I don't know how you would attach it without leaving some stubborn residue so maybe someone else can answer that.
is dollar store tape bad? o__o and sorry about that, i didn't test it with my other guitars.
nice i think thats a pretty sweet idea. A+ instructable
