Having a BFP -which is the guitar I've always wanted since the first time I've seen Her- was and still is a real blast!

I guess that having a 10th would be :roll: ...*orgasm*...

Hah of course Vai though of that first! I was going around being proud of myself because I velcroed me an allen wrench on the back of the headstock!

Actually, I found a pretty good way of holding picks that doesn't require tape, velcro, or glue. If you've got all your tuners on one side, go out and buy a Dunlop pickholder. I know they're meant for micstands, but I just stretch the thing onto the back of my headstock. It works like a dream and has worked for me on both my Fender Strat and my Carvin DC-127 for nearly a year on and offstage. It may cost a little more than the plastic binder, but, I think it's worth not having to glue something onto my headstock.

Well if you proceed by layers, like you would do with a sandwich, and in order from the headstock to the binder put:

1. Double sided tape
2. Glue
3. Velcro (one side)
4. Velcro (the other side)
5. Glue
6. Binder

you won't have any glue on your headstock (that's the way I did mine both for my strat and my jem indeed) and you can easily remove them if need to :wink:

Hm, seems like that would work reasonably well. However, even though the double-sided tape would be less obtrusive, there's still a possibility of sticky gunk on the headstock. Maybe I'll try it someday to get that authentic "Vai" feel, but, until then, I think the mic clip is working pretty well.

Nah don't worry about that, you can use some lighter fluid to remove the sticky gunk :wink:

Kerosene works best against all those sticky things.. The smell would be a bit of a problem tho..

I find using the mic stand pick holders are easier.

You could always just put a little bit of tape on the back of the guitar, like on the plate that covers the trem cavity. Nobody can see it that way.

Might make the picks a tiny bit sticky though, but at least it doesn't fall out. lol.

Fairly quickly, although I do concede that it would be slower than if it were on the headstock. lol.

What about that appendage Steve has on the back of his headstock for holding the Allen keys (see the guitar on the right)? Is that glued on/screwed in?


i think we can see a screw ...
