I've always used the method 3f wrote about above. I lay the guitar flat and then shake it up & down and sideways to get the pick into the area below the sound hole, then quickly flip it over. Centrifugal force holds the pick in...

I always find a trip to the space station works, gently move the guitar and the pick floats in it's original position, maneuver until the pick appears at the sound hole. Voila!

Case for J-35 (topic)
I bought a shop worn, caseless J-35 a couple of weeks ago and looking for a case. TKL's site is a pain to use and I'm having a hard time finding anything. I'd really like tweed, new or used. Any suggestions?

Re: Tracking an arrival (reply)
Has it arrived yet, Brian? I know next to nothing about electric guitars, but I think that PRS makes just about the prettiest ones on the market!

Fortunately, the pick going down the F-hole is pretty rare (at least on mandolin, although I supposed with the archtop's bigger f-hole.... nah! Still pretty rare!).

Lol, 1600/month for 3 years and you can own the OM-45 delux authentic! Kidding aside, if I had the money for the OM-45A, I woud buy it from Sweetwater, they have the nicest back / sides of the run.

Not from CL either but someone posted an ad on the bulletin board at work years ago that said, "FOR SALE - Wedding dress, size [whatever].  Worn once by mistake."3f

Trained Retrieval Squirrel. Cheap. They work for peanuts. If a TRS is unavailable, invert the guitar and do the Acoustic St. Vitus Shake.

Re: Insurance (reply)
Good point that "self insurance" is the right choice in some cases, either when you can afford to replace whatever you have, or when the minimum premium is too large compared to the total value of the collection, which may be just one...

I have had great service from Sweetwater. Once you are hooked up with a sales rep, you can actually call in and speak to a human about an order. One of the best on-line experiences I have had, and I would not hesitate to use them. Jim D

Use it as an excuse to change your strings or... ...glue a bottle cap to your pick, then if you drop it, you can get it out with a magnet on a string. Seriously, about the only time I drop a pick is if I have a "spontaneous nap" while...
