1 3/16″ tip to tip –
‘Well, the bigger the city, the brighter the lights. Bigger the dog, well, the harder the bite.”
If you want a pick that bites like a dog, this is the one!
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.
Gives a nice snap, or attack. Clean, clear, FAST and bright. Great pinch harmonics! Huge, edgy tone! Rolls off the strings like butter, effortless gliding. This pick is even a pleasure to look at. Has the wonderful V-Pick “grippage” that has become so popular among guitarists all over the world. Remember, once you’ve been bitten by the SNAKE, you will never be the same!
If you have ever played our regular 2.75mm and like the way they grip to your fingers, you will LOVE the way these 4.10 picks feel. They are just incredible!

Once again………….but this time was ~48hrs from order-delivery (actually less, I picked up the mail late today). That’s West Coast to East Coast. That’s Rockin’
Thanks V! These Pointy Snakes are my favs!
I just got my new Pointed Diamond and Snake and they are awesome. They probably have the best tone of all the V Picks I’ve tried so far. I am truly a believer of the principle of bigger picks equal bigger tone. I should know that principle, since I play saxophone as well. The thicker reeds have a better sound. I also wanted to say that I am amazed how fast your shipping goes. Its incredible how I ordered something and then 2 business days later, I get it. Keep up the good work and never stop making these picks.
Thanks for the suggestion to try the Snake Pointed Unbuffed. This pick is awesome. At first I thought it was slowing me down. The scratchier surface was making me think there was extra resistance and I was trying too hard. I put on a metronome and compared it to my other picks. The Snake is faster, I just needed to relax a bit! It’s also so easy to hold on to. Thanks again, I will order more!
