Fender Classic Celluloid picks combine the traditional tone and feel of celluloid, with beautiful and unique colors. Often called the "Fender pick," the 351 shape is the pick most associated with Fender company and guitar. A wider body and a rounded tip have made this pick a favorite with players of every style.
Why a Thin Guitar Pick?
Fender's thin picks are popular among rhythm and acoustic guitarists--as well as beginners--because the thinner gauge and extra bend generally makes it easier to strum. They give a brighter, trebel-heavy sound over medium and thick picks, and are a great way to change tone in acoustic guitars.
Celluloid, Historically Speaking
Invented in 1856, celluloid is considered the first invented thermoplastic. This was the first plastic ever used to produce picks, and it is still used today, especially for guitarists aiming for vintage tone. Celluloid is easily molded and shaped, and it was first widely used as an ivory replacement. Easy to manufacture, easy to produce, celluloid is the favored pick of guitarists around the world.
