Aside from doing complete custom builds, Suibhne Guitars also offers the following:

Handmade Guitar Picks

These guitar picks are handmade by myself in the Suibhne Guitars workshop from various species of hardwood, and are also available in super slick white teflon. These picks are much thicker than your traditional nylon, delrin or celluloid picks, but don’t let that turn you off. These picks are super comfortable and with a just a few minutes of “adjustment period”, most people find they prefer the feel, grip, tone and articulation that these plectrums offer. Available in three different thicknessess (5mm, 8mm and the “Mammoth” 11mm), and ten different species of hardwood (more variety coming soon), there is something for everyone. See for yourself what difference just a pick can make!

For a limited time, these picks will be offered to you for $5.75 a piece ($9.75 for teflon), with free shipping on orders over $60. This price will be increasing for 2016, as it is a very lengthy process to hand shape, sand and polish these, so get your order in today!

If you have any special requests for certain woods, feel free to reach me via the contact page, and I will see what I can do to accomodate your desires!

Current options for different woods include:

  • Mahogany
  • Curly Maple
  • Ebony
  • Padauk
  • Zebrawood
  • Purple Heart
  • Pau Ferro
  • Yellow Heart
  • Cherry
  • Rosewood

The Teflon picks are super slick, very resilient, and comfortable, especially given the ergonomic shape of these handmade picks. Try one today, you will be glad you did! These won’t be available forever, as the current supply is short, and after these are gone, if I can find more of this stuff, it won’t be this cheap at all. This is also a phenomenal material to use for nuts and acoustic saddles. For information on having your guitar retrofitted with a nut or saddle (or both!), please contact me through the contact page.
