Guitar Pick Historian

Guy DeVillez has always had a passion for music. At age 12, Guy started playing guitar and would collect odd guitar picks that he found here and there. He found colorful and unusual picks in music stores and after gigs in local clubs. As his collection grew, so did his knowledge of pick history. Guy now has more than 60,000 rare and interesting picks in his collection, including some from George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and the Rolling Stones! Over the years, Guy became a close friend of the late luthier, RC Allen. He took great pride in serving to keep RC’s legacy alive by preserving RC’s tools, photographs, and instruments.
