In this video of John Mayer performing *Why Georgia* live, his Dunlop Tortex Guitar Picks can be seen on the microphone stand pick holder. They are green, which corresponds to the .88 mm ones. They can be seen 0:53 into the video. At 1:46 you can see the back of the picks, which looks to have customized art.more
"My old wireless just took a dump, so I just got an Audio Technica 4000 series. This wireless sounds great and works great. There's actually some tone from the instrument coming through which is something that a lot of wireless systems can't do. I also got custom picks made. They are dunlop .88mm tortex."more
These were my pick of choice in my early 20s. I gauged up from the red tortexes on everything but acoustic. I still like these and use them sometimes. I'm not as fussy as I used to be though and use whatever is to hand. For awhile I played fignerstyle almost exclusively and stopped caring about picks. Now that I've gotten pick oriented again I just have a little bit of everything and find myself using these picks with my les pauls for some reason.
The Dunlop Totex .88 mm is the perfect combo when using 10 guage electric guitar strings. Its harder edge makes that biting pick sound when shredding. Also holds up nicely to long pick scrapes.
I have two: one I got from a friend which is orange which actually works, and another which is green. The grip on them is really good but they really suck if you tape them or put them on a pick holder. I mainly use them for downstrokes. I flip them upside down when I play them.
I've been using .88 Tortex since the mid 90's and never had a reason to go with anything else for guitar. They're a little too crisp sounding on bass, so I use Mick's thick green soft poly picks for that. Perhaps someday I'll jump on the jazz pick bandwagon, but for now I'm good with my old standby green turtles.
