I'm a geologist...I gotta have some of these!

I wish I hadn't seen these. Damn. Now I want one (two, no, three).

I've seen these before. Good price. I wonder how the weight is? Thanks for sharing. Enjoy. 

The weight is listed in the info for the individual slides...

That is very interesting. I would never have thought of that. I wonder what they do for the sound?
Ummmm...they ROCK?!

The picks are kinds funky too...Agate...sweet.

can you tell me the best place to buy a piece of hard wood for the neck? thank you
Ooohhhh you're a bad man BenBob!

I didn't know I wanted these until you pointed them out ;-)

I love those agate picks. Perhaps I could just get one... but who am I trying to fool, I'll probably end up with one of the lovely mixed sets!


Oh, these are cool. You guys gotta take a look.

Yeah but jade is a soft stone....that's why it's carvable....might not get much mileage outta them.....
You'd get more mileage out of it than a plastic pick. You'll wear the strings out before the pick.
