Guitar pick gauge??

Prince-guitargeek in the house!

Sooo, I know some you have been able to catch his pick at shows, was wondering if any musicians can tell me exactly what gauge picks he uses? Really interested in knowing what gauge he uses in order to play funk (thinner picks, my preference) as well as fast rock licks (thick picks).

I remember reading a thread where someone was ranting about P and his "paper thin" picks. I find that a bit hard to believe as it is REALLY hard to pull off solos as the one on anotherloverholenyohead on le grand journal tonight with thin picks:-D

By all accounts, he uses light to medium, standard shape nylon picks.

If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.

I was given a prince pic from back in the day. It was white and said "Love God" in purple ink in Prince's cursive. Anyway, it was basicially a fender medium.
