best fender guitar picks

Fender guitar picks are some of the most well known and iconic guitar picks. This is due to the rock and guitar legends who have used them.These include Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan who all used Fender picks.These picks helped shape rock and roll to what it is today. The best part is, you can still get the Fender picks just as they were back then.The even better part is that Fender has a wide range of guitar picks with different options of gauge, shapes and materials.These materials include celluloid, delrin, steel and the very innovative “Tru-Shell” which comes highly recommended

Fender Celluloid

The Fender Celluloid range of plectrums are definitely their most famous guitar pick and possibly one of the most famous guitar picks in the world. These celluloid picks by Fender are available in heavy, medium and soft gauges. You can also get the Fender celluloids in a few different shapes which include the original regular 351, Sharp triangular, rounded triangular and jazz. When I mentioned the famous guitar players such as Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix above, I refer to these Fender celluloids that they used. The Fender celluloid guitar picks come second in our list of the best guitar picks ever.


This is fender’s new material that they have recently brought to the plectrum world. The Tru-Shell series aims replicate the sound of the old tortoise shell picks which you can no longer get as it is illegal to do so. Many different guitar pick companies claim to replicate this sound however according to Fender, these are the closest sounding synthetic picks to tortoise shell that are available today. I unfortunately cannot vouch for this as I have never owned nor played a real tortoise shell guitar pick. Having said that, the Tru-Shell picks by Fender feel and sound great and remind me a lot of the Delrin material.
