KISS NOVELTY PICKS

A pictured reference guide to various KISS related novelty guitar picks. These are picks that were not produced for any sort of touring.  They generally are produced as giveaways or specifically for the purpose of sale to the general public in some fashion.

 

I have not yet collected a lot of these myself, but I am interested in obtaining picks I do not have. Descriptions in this color green are ones I do not have.

 

Late 1980's MUSICADE PICKS

Sold in the late 1980's through back of Metal Edge & other magazines - NOT tour designs used by band/artist:

 
      The following versions were printed lengthwise on the picks:

 

MUS-PS1 - gold on white - sideways logo / sideways sig (same as Love Gun)

 

MUS-PS2 - gold on black - sideways logo / sideways sig (same as Love Gun)

 

MUS-GS1 - gold on baby blue - sideways logo / sideways sig (same as Love Gun)

MUS-BK2 - gold on transparent blue - sideways logo / sideways sig (same as Asylum)

  MUS-AF1 - silver on white - sideways Comet logo / sideways sig (same as Love Gun except straight across)
 
      The following versions were printed with normal orientation:

 

MUS-BK3 - gold on baby blue - logo / sig (same as Asylum)

 

MUS-AF2 - gold on thin yellow - logo / sig (same as Love Gun except straight across)

 

MUS-AF3 - gold on baby blue - logo / sig (same as Love Gun except straight across)

BRUCE KULICK ESP GUITARS PROMO PICKS

 

Bruce ESP Guitar picks

There are also different re-printed versions of these over the years for the NAMM Conventions. Some use different plastics, different size picks or different size logos.  Here are a few of them:

 

ESP-BK1 - black with white logo & sig / ESP (speaker E) - Japanese version

ESP-BK2 - black with white logo & sig / ESP

ESP-BK3 - black with white logo & sig / ESP (larger logo)

ESP-BK4 - black with white logo & sig / larger ESP (with box around it and larger speaker in the E) - Japanese version

ESP-BK5 - white with black logo & sig / ESP (speaker E) - Japanese version

ESP-BK6 - white with black logo & sig / ESP

ESP-BK7 - white with black logo & sig / ESP (larger logo)

ESP-BK8 - white with black logo & sig / larger ESP (with box around it and larger speaker in the E) - Japanese version

ESP-BK9 - transparent green with silver prism logo & sig / ESP  This one has an interesting story: This was actually supposed to be for the band ESP (Eric Singer Project).  But the pick company used the Electronic Sounds Products logo.  Since Bruce endorses their guitars, they allowed him to have the picks rather than destroying them.

Notes: There are unconfirmed rumors of a white on purple pick. If you look closely, the US versions have a slightly different E. Electrovoice in Japan actually has a copyright on the speaker in the E, so the E had to be modified for the US versions of the pick.
