I hope Fender Guitars never stops making these. I finally have a guitar pick that does what I want it to, and not what it wants - like every other pick on the market. It doesn't get caught up in the strings, yet it has a firm yet appropriate flex. I use the THIN (Surf green) and I'm able to play Speed Metal, Punk power chords, Shred, and soft intricacies - at at any given point in time!Most people say these picks 'suck', but if you have varying dynamics to your playing, you are able to keep these picks both intact and preserve their lifespan. I can play for an hour full tilt and the THIN pick barely shows any wear whatsoever! And the grip is stupendous; I don't need to adjust the pick anymore - because it just stays in place. Kudos.Last but not least is the California cool "Palm tree" graphic; combined with the cool colors, it makes one feel spiffy when you're getting set jam - and that makes ya play better - with also knowing your pick can withstand some heavy abuse, contrary to popular belief. Buy, buy, buy!

Buy these picks for playing chords and gentle,pristine.Not for fast,heavy playing.A bit expensive,but what're you going to do.
I have fun using a thin, burgundy mist pick for strumming big chords.It helps them ring out more.Produces more treble and slides down the strings swiftly.But I normally use Dunlop Ultex .60 picks for my fast,power chord punk playing and I wouldn't recommend these Fender Clears for aggressive playing.
I agree that these picks wear down rather quickly, but what I use them for keeps them useable for a decent amount of time.Sure, if you're going to use these picks for heavy down picking or just playing alot of power chords,you use them up fast.
These picks are a bit expensive,though not as expensive as the Dunlop picks I use.

Do not use!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

When I first bought my Fender Strat, these picks came with it. Unfortunately I didn't know how horrible they are. They rip really easily. If you are used to these picks, get Dunlop Gel Picks because they have the same texture, shape and style. Plus they never rip.

NOT a Cellulose PICK

By Unit_1

from The Valley, San Fernando

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

Traditional Fender guitar picks are made out of cellulose - a very long lasting, and VERY flammable material.These picks would be perfect for the space station, because they are not made of cellulose and are not flammable. However THEY MELT when you really play fast and hard. Then the end curls up and becomes useless after one glissando such as the one in Space Oddity.They also break like crazy. I've been playing guitar for 44 years (today is actually my 55th birthday) and these are the worst picks I've ever used. I will not buy them again. However, if you are planning a trip to the space station and need a nice pick that won't burn the place down, this is your pick bro!

ARGH! YOU STUPID PICK!

By Anonymous

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

These picks are very bad quality. As soon as you drop them on the floor, they get all scratched up. Once they're scratched up, they get little nicks on the sides of them. The nicks get caught on your guitar strings. It is just annoying. Stay away from these, please.

These picks suck

By Alexi666

from in a cardboard box

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

The only thing these picks are good for is light accoustic playing... once you start to play electric guitar these picks immediatly become useless. i bought a pack of the red one in medium and i was really disappointed. after playing for only fifteen minutes my first pick broke and there have been coungless others that have followed... do not but these picks unless you have nothing better to do but run right back to the store to buy different ones

fender guitar picks. theyyyyreee GREAT!

By Scott Tompkins

from colorado

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

Yeah, great picks. Snazzy looking. Nice texture. Don't slip when wet, price was good. Another great product.
Hmm. Well, they're sort of triangular with rounded corners. Nothing at all like the other picks. They do look real nice though, and mine say "Fender" on them, so people know I'm cool. Not like those "Ed's gas" picks my buddy has.
Actually real nice. Some of the other picks I have have faded or gotten grungy looking, or get slick when I sweat. These still look like new.
Excellent value, (aside from they sent me 12 and not 351 of them) .

Shredded!!

By ajguitarman

from Adams, NY

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

I have a high end Alvarez accoustic guitar with ultra light Elixir strings (nanoweb). I bought a cae of these picks. Every time I play the picks shred, and they leave a fine dust all over the front of my guitar. Very dissappointed, and definitely sticking with Clayton's.

Pretty Bad

By Stonehenge

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

Like the other people have said, they wear down very quick. I also found that if you play hard, they also act like crayons, marking up your pickguard real good. It's not too easy to remove the marks either.

Heavy Gauge Picks Ok Medium or Thin Caution

By steelpig

from Rough & Ready, CA

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

The Heavy Gauge Fender 351 picks aren't so bad. But unless you have a dozen or so of medium or thin gauge picks, take care since they are prone to breaking rather fast, especially if you are a hard strumming pick player.

Not great picks

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

I play bass, so I use heavy picks. A friend of mine got a pack of these and they were in heavy so he gave them to me. You litteraly cannot play a whole song without some white stress marks in the pick. I also play guitar, and I was at a friends house using an oringinal california clear (vintage 1960's or 70's). It might've been because it was old or crappy, but with the 1st strum the pick broke. There are also better brands out there. The musician friends picks are pretty good, so are dunlops and gibsons. Dont forget this brand called stash picks too.

Decent Picks

By GuitarWolf058

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

A friend gave these to me and they aren't too bad. I have the blue, thin picks and I have found that they tend to bend a lot and do not last very long. Since they have no grip, they also tend to slip around and are hard to gain control of.

Dissappointing...

By Thrashmetal15

from Pennsylvania

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

These used to be my favorite picks. Not so much anymore. They are very soft, much too soft for my playing style. The edges develop deep grooves after running the edge of the pick down the strings, and the attack point wears away VERY quickly leaving fine shavings all over your guitar. I generally had one of these (heavy gauge) worn out after 3 or 4 songs. I now use Dunlop Tortex Purple 1.14mm picks; they are much denser and harder. I highly recommend them over these. I used to buy these Fender Cali Clears by the dozen! That's how fast they wore out. In their defense I think they have a slightly brighter, snappier sound than the Dunlop Tortex picks, but that hardly makes them worth your money.

Outstanding

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

I used to use Dunlop Gator Grips but got a few of these because, honestly, they looked cool. That was about 5 years ago. These picks are great! Besides the obvious occasional thin gauged ones, I have never broken any of them. One time my dog got a hold of a medium and just kinda chewed it up, but couldn't break it.And as far as the logo screen printed on them, I am sure that I could find a pick from years ago that can still show the logo and palm tree. Besides, if one should happen to rub off, who cares? Did you buy it to look at it? Come on, people.Obviously some of the people leaving reviews were not as happy as I am with them, but I imagine they are either amateurs who are beating their picks to death or they just don't understand what gauge they need to be playing with. I have some of all the gauges and I switch, depending on the style.

Excellent Picks

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

These are excellent picks, They were the first picks I ever used and they're still the best I've ever used, I've never had a problem with scratching or dust like the other reviews, The only problem I ever had was that they tend to get a bit slippery after a while but thats not a big problem at all...

I always break them

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

I bought a dozen of these awhile back and every time I used them they would totally break in half after playing with one for just a short while. So now I stick to the finder celluloid. Ive been using them for years and have only broke one so far.

Don't buy these

By Sunny Blakk

Comments about Fender 351 California Clear Guitar Picks:

These are probably the worst picks I have ever used and would not recommend them for any style of playing. Like everyone else says, they break and wear way too easy and they mark up your pickguard beyond repair. The most annoying thing is catching the edge of the pick on the higher strings while playing.
