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 Ready Pick. 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.

starcasters arent smaller tham a standard strat, they are just made cheaper.

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

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

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.
muffinhead (author) 6 years ago
is dollar store tape bad? o__o and sorry about that, i didn't test it with my other guitars.
