Willie Nelson Guitar Picks, by Picking

“Poodie called and said, “Hey baby boy…I need a pick. We are doing 7 shows with the dead”. To me the graphic was obvious, “Steallie”… Garcia’s “Steal Your Face” lcon… with a Willie bandana…Poodie said, “Put sunglasses on it and it will be perfect”…It is one of the most collectible picks of all time, but you will be lucky to find one because we only ran 2880…That’s a short run…

Thanks to the Picking for sharing his stories about the Willie Nelson & Family guitar picks his company designed.

“This graphic of Willie was done by CP Vaughn, in my opinion one of Texas’ greatest treasures…I contacted CP to see if he had any ideas for a guitar pick image and he told me of this idea he had just created…What amazed me about the graphic was how much CP captured of Willie with some few lines…It is my favorite…”


“This guitar pick was produced for Willie when he was asked to preform at the Nobel Peace Prize presentation to Jimmy Carter.  A small run, maybe 1500.”

“Sadly, this was the last pick design I did for Willie and Family in the spring of 2010.. As it is, there were only 720 of these done.”
