1 1/4″ tip to tip –
Nexus is defined as “connection”. That is what I feel this pick does. It REALLY connects you to your guitar. A lot of energy is transferred thru this pick. The triangle shape makes it feel like there is not much in your hand, even with the 5.85mm thickness. The Ghost Rim model V-PICK is an option of manufacture that gives you a wonderful, unique, and very musical “ghostly whisper” to your pick attack. It can be used to tame down a very aggressive attack and yet, if you change your technique just a bit, you can get that cool Brian May, Ed King, Billy Gibbons effect and sound! It can deliver a hush effect much like a violin bow, or bark like you are using a coin as a plectrum. If you do not like the chirp a thick pick can sometime make, then the Ghost Rim option is for YOU! First we take extra time to expertly and masterfully grind the pick. We have this method down to an art. This is not easy and takes years to learn to do it correctly. So much care is taken because the pick does not go thru the last stage of flame buffing. The flame can hide a multitude of sins, so we have to make sure these are precisely made to our exacting specifications. I first started making picks like this in 1980. V-PICKS are the FIRST and ORIGINAL company to make this product available to you. We invented this idea of making picks and we excel above all the rest in doing so. All of my personal picks have been Ghost Rim or “unbuffed” picks. My son, Adam came up with this design. It is a brilliant invention indeed. The Nexus has quickly become one of my favorite V-PICKS. I like it because it has quick action, but the best thing about it is it’s expressional capabilities. It can be soft and whispery, and then roar like a lion. When you strike the string hard and firmly, this pick sounds almost like clipping an amp or compressor! It’s crazy but true, and this is with the guitar unplugged! Is natural compression or tube clipping possible? It seems to be with this pick!
