good call, Lazy, i never thought of that yet i am always frustrated when i can't find my pick after i put it down. of course the best place to put your extra picks is right under your picking hand. damn, you are clever, thanks for the tip!
edit: just realized my LP has a raised pickguard so this won't really work, but i am gonna find a place on my guitar to stash my backups.
a whole new gameball
