Say your guitar has a piece missing out of it, a chunk or what have you and you totally want to rock and you feel like you can't because your pick is broken, no problem. If you can get a pair of scissors and you have a relatively steady eye, these things are pretty pliable. Some of the picks are harder than others. There's really heavier gauged picks. This is kind of a medium gauge pick. Just take your scissors and try to just trim a little bit around the area that is broken and kind of cut the shape of the pick back into the pick.
