Default Christmas Waiting List Now Open for Our New Mother-of-Pearl Inlaid Pick (see photos!)





There is nothing like this in the industry. Meet Charmed Life Iridescence, the perfect gift for the musician in your life.

THE STORY: For the past few years we've wanted to produce a line of picks that would knock the rest of the industry on their can. After two years of hard labor, two years of sweat and grime, we achieved the impossible -- the first production guitar pick inlaid with genuine mother-of-pearl. Exclusively from Charmed Life.

What are you looking at? It's our proprietary blood-red artisan casein inlaid with our Shamrock logo in genuine mother-of-pearl.

Please Note: These are not for sale on our website. And when they do go up, they will be listed as "Special Order Only," at least through the end of 2021. We simply won't have enough of these to go around. If interested in contacting us and being placed on our wait list, please follow the instructions immediately below.

IMPORTANT: THESE WILL BE IN VERY SHORT SUPPLY THROUGH CHRISTMAS AND ON INTO VALENTINE'S DAY. IF YOU WANT ONE, PLEASE EMAIL ME ASAP at CHARMEDLIFEPICKS @ gmail TO BE PUT ON OUR WAITING LIST.

Please don't PM me here at AGF; I often go days without visiting the forum.

There's nothing like this pick anywhere in the industry. We're the only ones.

Details:
-- Price: $99.00
-- 2.0 mm thick
-- standard Fender 351 teardrop shape
-- each pick has its own serial number
-- free gift box
-- free shipping

The gift box choices will look like this -- again, this is free.





We received the first small batch of these about two weeks ago. Half of them are already spoken for. We're hoping for another small batch in October. We do not expect to have any left on the shelf by January 1, 2022.

We've thrown down the gauntlet to other pick vendors, and that message is: "Top this."

NO PREPAYMENT OR DOWN PAYMENT ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME. PLACEMENT ON WAITING LIST DOES NOT OBLIGATE YOU TO PURCHASE.

So far we've sold a total of one, to a customer named Jimmy H., in CA, who wanted to be the first. Jimmy recevied serial number #0001. Here is his review:

"Thank you so much for creating a pick, a plectrum, that is perfection in beauty, function, and attention to detail. The inlay work is, to my eyes, exquisite. The edge, polish fit and finish are unequaled. Once again thank you and everyone else involved in this heirloom pieceÖ that Iím actually playing."

Thanks, everyone, for your continued support of Charmed Life Picks.

Feel free to post questions or comments in this thread, or to email us with same.

Thanks for looking.

All the Best,
Scott & Rhonda Memmer

We're pretty sure this will become our #1 selling line within a year. Wait till you see some of the exclusive casein color options we already have on the shelf. You'll be stunned.

PLEASE email me ASAP if you have any inkling of wanting one of these.

These will be divied out on a first-come, first-served basis. And there is absolutely no obligation on your end. These will be VERY LIMITED on into 2022. Reserve one now for Christmas or Valentine's Day.

Thanks,
Scott & Rhonda

Please please please, if you have any interest in this new model, whether as a gift for a loved one, or for someone to give to YOU as a gift, I can't stress strongly enough to contact me and get put on our wait list ASAP, even if you aren't sure. We ask for NO MONEY up front, and you're also under no obligation to purchase.

As nicely as I can say this, please don't contact us in November and beg us to sell one to you of these. They will be gone. By Thanksgiving we expect us to be oversold on these and, if we have any left, we will already be filling orders for Valentine's Day from people who let us know in July or August that they want one. This is the PERFECT Valentine's Day gift for the guitarist in your life, or for someone to purchase for you as a gift.

I'm not a hype kind of guy. I'm just being as honest as I can about our situation. In two weeks we've already sold HALF of the first run we received -- and they're not even posted on our site! We expect them all to be spoken for by August 1st. You snooze, you lose.

The time is act is now. Put your name on the list and bail later if you want; no biggie.

HOW TO CONTACT US FOR THE WAITING LIST: Please email us directly (not PM here on AGF) at charmedlifepicks @ gmail and put in the subject line, in all caps, IRIDESCENCE WAITING LIST.

A few more snaps of this incredible pick:





Thanks Very Much,
Scott & Rhonda Memmer

The first run is now officially half spoken for. We expect first shipments to go out by the end of August (we're releasing only five per month till the end of the year).

If you'd like one of these, either for yourself or as a gift for a loved one for Christmas or Valentine's Day, please don't hesitate. Now is the time to tell us. We expect to be oversold by Thanksgiving. Instead, write us at charmedlifepicks @ gmail, with the subject line in all caps with IRIDESCENCE WAITING LIST! to be put on our growing wait list. Don't wait!

This model is not up on our site and cannot be ordered there. Right now these are strictly on a SPECIAL ORDER status. Please write if interested.

Thanks,
Scott

We will be releasing the first five units next week. They have already been spoken for. Right now it looks like the second five units will be released around the end of September.

Please, if you have any interest in this product as a gift, either for yourself or a loved one, contact me at your earliest convenience to be put on our wait list. There is no obligation and you can pass at any time, but at least your name will be on the list.

Are we crazy? A $99 guitar pick? Why did we do this?

Here's why. For the last three years, our most popular line has also been our most expensive line. Our $30 picks have almost stopped selling. What sells? Our 1.50 mm artisan flame casein triangle, pictured below, is the hottest seller in our company -- at $45.00.



As a marketer, I see a lot more room ABOVE that $45 price point than below. So this is an upward line extension. You might relate this to cars. A number of decades ago Toyota launched Lexus -- and upward line extension for the Toyota brand. At first people scoffed and kept buying BMWs and Mercedes vehicle. But look at it now. It's a huge success. That's our line of thinking. We want to set a new standard in the high-end pick market. We want to be a leader, not a follower. Let others follow. So we will lead this charge.

Think about this. Thousands of guitar players own Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Collings, Bourgeois, Froggy Bottom guitars, plus high-end Taylors, Martins, Gibsons. What can you give that person as a gift that will match the pedigree of their instrument? A Charmed Life Iridescence Pick is the perfect choice.
