I found this beauty on eBay expecting a decorative instrument only but it sounds fantastic! It's a Folkroots and is at least 24 years old because the painting is signed by Janelle Johnson and dated 1994. I paid $250.
I discovered my favorite pick only recently. It's called Pykmax and is a revolution in guitar picks. It's really hard to describe how it works but it basically is a mini-platform that holds a pick and is cradled in your hand. It's fantastic!
