    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.

    id probably use masking tape or something for this step so it doesn't leave adhesive.

    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!

    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.

    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.
