And I thought $7.95 was a lot for an Adamas 2MM

Check this out.....especially the part about the genuine "Bill Weir" pick he has as well.

How could one prove the provenance and for $1295.00.......and for that kind of money I want it DNA tested.

30 years, 32,000 whatever freeking shows, and you'll NEVER find another pick like this. Sheesh.

He's got it sealed in plastic because I'm sure it's just "dripping with tone"... :lol:

Here is what the seller said. " Other then have my cousin write a letter or something I have no clue? All I know is Jerry handed that pick to my cousin and then right off to me.

That's the best I have for you my man.

I have sold hundreds of stage used picks on this site and thru auction houses. I can guarantee you I am not going to guitar center buying picks and selling them on eBay or at auction,

Thanks, ATWA

Still seems a little rediculously priced though. The singer in my band has one didn't pay a dime for it!

He's a huge Dead Head, a cousin of K C's, and he also has a "Stage used pick from Bill Weir of Rat Dog." :lol: There is a sucker born every min! That's Life.

Was Jerry even using the Adamas picks yet in August of 1980?

I think your stock may have just gone down a little bit. Might want to rethink that one.
