We’ve done you the favour of listing the worst presents for guitarists you need to avoid at all costs, followed up by what you should buy instead around the same price.
It’s fair to say musicians would prefer something genuinely useful for making music instead of a novelty item. No longer will you fret over what to get the budding rock star at Christmas.
DON’T buy: guitar pick puncher
DO get: guitar picks
Quite literally every guitarist has a plectrum lying around somewhere. You’re more likely to find a pick down the back of the sofa than this pick puncher in a dusty box in the attic. And the picks you punch out of card don’t feel or sound good in any way, ever.
Better to get tried and tested picks you know they’ll like. Most picks will have a name or brand printed on them, so take a quick peek at what they use already.
