We’ve got another hot one for you! Rick has been a listener of the show for years, and we’ve chatted on the internet for almost as long. So this was a real treat to get him on the podcast and talk about pick making, Yamaha guitars, starting a business during Covid, and a whole lot more!

Rick Calhoun and his brother are the creators, designers, and builders for their company Honey Picks. Based out of North Carolina they make possibly the best picks on the market at the moment...... at least in my opinion. Not only are they super functional but they are truly a work of art. Rick and I talk everything from is beginnings and the sick guitar he started on all the way up to where we are today. When it comes to guitar picks Rick is probably one of the most passionate people I've ever met. I can guarantee that any pick you get from Honey Picks has Rick pouring his heart and soul into to every one the leaves the shop. Rick is a phenomenal guest and I know y'all will enjoy this just as much as I did!
