    Where can I order these things?

    • Josh Summers says:

      Each of these should have a working link to Amazon where you can purchase the items. I hope it’s been a helpful list for you!

  2. Elsie says:

    I wld like to order a couple of items for my guitar crazy husband on his birthday. Unfortunately, i only realised this site today. Am in Ghana,how many days will it take to reach me if i order. His birthday is the 2nd of july.

    • Josh Summers says:

      Hey Elsie…you will have to refer to the specific sellers that you decide to use. Some offer international shipping and can do so very quickly while others only ship domestically in the US or Europe. Best of luck getting a gift for your “guitar-crazy husband”!

  3. hello – please let folks know about my awesome guitar themed gifts. I have designed a line of music handbags. My company is 2 years old. My guitar purses are handpainted by artists in Tennessee. You can also order them as DIY Music gifts to get a blank purse with instructions of how to paint it yourself. A tie dye design is not too hard and awesome fun to paint.

  4. Mary says:

    My only question is, as for the guitar picks, arent there different types and sizes? How do I know which one to get? Is there a generic one most guitar players use or is there a way to find out without asking that person?

    • Josh Summers says:

      Hey Mary, thanks for your great question! While you are correct that there are multiple pick sizes, in actuality there is really only one standard size that everybody uses. The other sizes aren’t nearly as common.

      Most guitarists don’t really care about size of a pick as much as they care about thickness. A thin pick produces a different sound and feel from a thicker pick. Personally, I keep picks of all different kinds of thickness and use them at different times, so in answer to your question: no matter what pick you buy, more than likely your guitar friend/loved one will have a good use for it at some point. Don’t worry about it 🙂

    Great list Josh – some really cool stuff here. We’re a small company making single-string capos – and have just come back into stock right before Christmas (after selling out of our stock last month). We’ve been told, they make great stocking fillers…Bw Andy
