Originally only available as part of the Kirk Hammett Pick Tin, players can now get Kirk’s personal pick in a 6-piece Player’s Pack. Once the axe-wielding Metallica madman first got his hands on a Jazz III pick , he never looked back-its superior speed, precision, and control changed his whole playing experience. Eventually, he took to customizing it himself for even better handling by cutting a V-shape out of the grip. Based on that modification, we created the Kirk Hammett Signature Jazz III Pick so you can keep a regular supply of the same pick Kirk uses on the road and in the studio.

Noticeably the thing that makes this stand out from other Jazz III picks the the cut out that's meant to keep it in place and not worry about it slipping out of your fingers. I'll go ahead and say I'm a bedroom musician but I've been using Jazz III's for nearly a decade, so I'm familiar with them but can't comment on stage use. These are pretty great, I like the cut away it does help, however how much it will help varies and depends on how you hold your pick. I tend to hold very close to the tip but it does feel different holding it than when I hold my JP Jazz III's or my Tortex ones but I'm starting to move a bit higher on the pick and it feels nice, I think the cut away helps angle the top of the pick towards the inside of your finger just a tiny bit but does have a impact and I do feel gripping the pick is easier than your standard shaped Jazz III.
Overall I'd say it's worth giving a shot, I could see this being beneficial to someone with larger finger who can cover a larger surface of the pick than my medium to small fingers ever could. I'm starting to think my dream pick might be a combination of this cutaway on a John Petrucci Jazz III, I'd just like to try this pick made of a different material than nylon but that's just my curiosity. It's a fantastic pick and one I think is worth a try for only a few pounds it could become your new favourite. Personally I'm not sure which will become my go to pick but I'll update this review if this becomes my go to pick.
Hopefully you found this review helpful and happy shredding.
Edit: I brought these to my music theory lesson and my teacher didn't think much of them then used them, ordered a set as soon as the lesson was over and loves them.
The cut at the top DOES actually help with maneuvering and controlling the orientation of the pick within your fingers. However, I felt that the lost surface area due to the cutaway at the top actually reduced my overall grip, since there is technically less material to hold on to.
While these are in fact labeled as Jazz III's, they're noticeably more flexible and less stiff than the standard red Jazz III's. I found that to be a little irritating as I am used to relatively thicker/stiffer picks.
I tried them out and they don't feel that stable in my fingers due to the shape and my mate told me the signed part collects finger dirt like mad
They are incredibly small, but I found that after nearly 20 years of playing guitar using these managed to improve my dexterity and speed within weeks.
I recommend for advanced electric guitar players.
