Introducing: Jayme’s Plectrum Picks®, a division of Jack’s Guitarcheology.
Jayme is Jack’s partner in business and in life, and she is quite the vintage guitar pick aficionado. She has spent all of her spare time the last few months reading articles on D’Andrea and watching Joe Macey (RIP to a legend) videos. So, without further adieu, let’s talk plectrums with Jayme:
This is a standard 351 thin-gauge pick made of translucent red celluloid. The gold Regal logo is hot-leaf stamped – instead of a flat print onto the pick, the foil logo was embedded into the plastic. There is a slight bend in the plastic that you can see in the fourth picture.
In the 1930s, Chicago-based Regal Musical Instrument Company was one of the largest instrument manufacturers in the world, running their own line of fretted instruments and manufacturing for National and Dobro. It was purchased by Harmony in 1941, then Fender took over in the late 1950s. Fender ceased producing Regal products after 1965. Saga Musical Instruments took over in 1987 and continues to produce resonant instruments under the Regal brand today.
All our picks are stored in a case with plenty of circulating air. I will ship it in a coin flip to ensure stability in transit, but please do not store it in this container long-term. Celluloid is an unstable plastic that is prone to disintegration when it doesn’t get enough air. The shipping cost allows us to ship with a bubble mailer and a tracking number. International packages will come first class.
