Mike’s current main squeeze is a 1985 Gibson Les Paul Custom that he bought in his hometown of Chicago at Rock N Roll Vintage. Since acquiring the guitar, he dropped in new pickups—a high-wound Lollar Imperial in the bridge and a standard Lollar Imperial in the neck. Sullivan goes with D’Addario NYXL .011–.056 strings and tunes this one to a DADGAD variant—C#-G#-D-G-C-A#. When it comes to picks, he’s been loyal to the Dunlop Max-Grip Jazz III since he found some inside a box for an Andy Timmons pedal.more
The only Pick I'd personally ever use and touch, introduced to me by a Dear Friend and since then this particular model in Red is my favourite JAZZ III design. Warm Tone and great Articulation with this Pick.
These are very good for fast picking, but I wouldn't use this during gigs because they are so small that my picking hand thumb starts to hurt (dunno why it's so). The max grip surface works as advertisized, doesn't drop in accident.
I hated playing with picks because (1) most picks feel flimsy with my heavy pick attack, and (2) dropping picks while playing became a routine thing. I looked into these and not only do these hold up well, but I think my guitar playing improved once I got accustomed to them.
