Counterfeit Rick Picks

RE: Counterfeit Rick Picks
This is NOT a Rick Nielsen pick - he is obviously making his own and selling them as "original" items. Please do not buy any items from this seller!

A note from Rick:
#1. I never had a Crackled Pearl Pick
#2. Does not say Las Vegas
#3. States as being Original
#4. And not only this pick on eBay, there are others....

While it's obviously not a sgt. pepper pick, I have to disagree that he hasn't had a pick like that. It's not pearl. It's one of the translucent ones, but when you put them against a black or white surface, they look pearlish like that.

here's pictures of one of mine that look just like it and i have never got rick's picks anywhere but from concerts, I'd never pay for one.

back

I also heard from a friend that at some of the earlier vegas shows there weren't special picks, that is just hearsay though.

Either way, there are TONS of fake rick picks on ebay, I remember seeing a lot from the hollywood bowl shows pop up because the guy had tons of them and there was no way he got that many and he'd just keep re-listing more once they sold so it was quite obvious.

So much for the "top seller" rating then, huh!
