This wooden guitar pick is made out of Mallee Burl.
Mallee Burl has simple, but beautiful darker colored grains than regular maple, but also has the perfect density to be a sturdy guitar pick. (Burl - a knot on the side of a tree containing beautiful dense, grain figuration).
It is sanded down to a very smooth finish to show off its great color. At the top of the pick there are finger grips to keep the pick from slipping while strumming.
Makes for the perfect gift for any music lover or guitar player.
Difference between plastic and wood picks: wood is much stiffer and has little to no flexibility, however it offers a much clearer and stronger strum. You'll notice that it doesn't have that plastic plucking sound that most plastic picks have as the pick catches on every string.
