Got my package yesterday with my OFC store goodies. Great stuff. The cap in on my head, the t shirt is in the wash, the pen is great, the to go coffee mug and been washed and is ready to be used, and the certificate is going to get framed and hung today.

My question is on the picks. It feels like the blue ones are comperable to Fender heavy pics and the white one's to Fender medium. Does this sound right to others?

The TAN ones are .60mm which are considered medium by some, light by others.

The BLUE ones are 1.5mm which are considered heavy by some and medium by others.

I think it depends on if you are primarily an Acoustic player or an Electric player. If there is a desire for a different weight I can check into it, or if by popular demand they should be called light and medium or whatever, just let me know.

Heavy to me is 1.0 and up, and light to me .99 and below. I'm more interested in feel than thickness. I have Vox .60 that are called "light" and Fender .60 that are medium.

The tan (light) OFC picks feel like mediums to me.

Mine are white and blue --- no tan picks. And I'm not comlaining. The white ones are perfect.

Hey Paul I guess there are many "shades" of white, but if you put the pick on a sheet of paper you will see it is not white. I'm partially colorblind and can see they are not even close to white :) but I guess things look different in the California sun :) LOL.

I received my hat and certificate yesterday. Thanks, Miles! That is one "quality" chappeau! I will wear it with pride, and guard it with my life.
I'm still dealing with my novicular (2nd thumb joint) bone bruise, which is severely limiting my guitarplaying. As Joni Mitchell observed many years ago, "You don't know what you got, 'til its gone". 51 year old bones take longer to heal, also!
Happy New Year,
Chris
