Product Description

Inspired by Andy Wood, the IBJ55 pick is larger than a regular Jazz pick, and smaller than a Jazz LG.  It has a universal rounded bevel and comes with 6 pre-drilled holes in the center. This pick is 55/1000 of an inch(1.4mm) thickness. All of our picks are professionally machined, hand beveled, and laser etched. 


Quarters, Nickels and Dimes, if included in the pictures, are for size reference only. They are not etched on the picks or included with the sale. To use this reference, please place a coin on your current non-Bluechip pick and then compare to the pictures of our picks with coins on top of them. This will help you choose the pick that is closest to your current favorite size and shape.

  1. Great pick but too small for me. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2024

    I've been using a TAD 40 for over 10 years but have been looking for a better attack. I sometimes use a Dunlp Vortex sharp to get that attack and picking accuracy I need for some pieces. I wondered what a sharp Blue Chip pick might sound like so I reshaped a TAD40 with a point (like the Dunlop), put a bevel on it and polished it. The modified TAD40 has become my favorite pick but I was hoping I could get something I liked as well off-the-shelf. So I bought one of the IBJ55's to try.

    I love the IBJ55 point and the holes for grip. The attack, picking accuracy and tone are great. The only negative is that it is just too small, for me anyway. Make an IBJ55 the same width and height as the TAD40 and I would be a very happy picker!

  2. really not a downside 5 Star Review

    I like every blue chip ive had in my hands, this one absolutely plays great on my electric guitar (faster and clearer than my other blue chips i use on mandos)

  3. Normally, I hate this shape ... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2024

    My other Blue Chip experiments have gone so well, I thought I may as well try this small, pointy, hole-punched pick.
    Surprise! I never would have anticipated liking it on - of all things - mandolin. I 'always' use rounded picks on mando, but this guy has given me an option, a different and exceptional tone.
    Now I need to try it on electric, where I never use picks, being a player of more of a clawhammer style.
    Anyway, if you hate this shape, open your mind and you might expand your tonal palette.

  4. use these i\picks if you want your leads to stand out 5 Star Review

    What I like most about the blue chip pick is the tone generated when striking the string. Whether its chording or single note playing, the notes project so weil. The smooth, beveled edge provides a clean, beautiful sound and helps improve picking speed and articulation. Never going back to regular picks

  5. IBJ55 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2024

    This pick ( IBJ55 ) delivers a buttery-smooth connection to the strings of my electric guitars. It is only slightly larger, but the same thickness as the nylon pick I was using. The holes in this pick are a great feature because my thumb and index finger stick to them. Thus, my pick attack is more relaxed. I am delighted with the improvement in tonal quality and harmonics, produced by this fabulous pick!

  6. IBJ55 is the GOAT 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2024

    I have tried just about every Blue Chip pick. To me the IBJ55 best approximates my (now former) favorite pick, the Dava Jazz Grip. As a gigging guitarist, for my role in the band, I am constantly shifting between lead and rhythm. You want a pick you can “shred” with but not be too stubby/short to be articulate on rhythm. The IBJ55 is the perfect size to play lead and rhythm without sacrificing either. The holes aren’t necessary as the material on its own is still grippy, but it actually feels nice and grips even extra (we aren’t trying to lose a Blue Chip, right??). Most importantly, the attack/tone on these picks are perfect. I have several IBJ55’s and they are a critical tool in what I do.

  7. So good 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2024

    This is the one I've been looking for! It's so good that I bought three, two for me and one for my son.

  8. IBJ55 but in 35 size is a winner!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Nov 2023

    I had it custom made in 35 size and it's absolutely perfect! Just a bit of flex and I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommended!!!!

  9. Simply awesome. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2023

    A friend suggested these and I am so glad I took his advice. Absolutely awesome, worth every penny and then some.

  10. 5 stars is nowhere near enough for this pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Aug 2023

    I rarely ever leave reviews unless I feel something truly deserves it. This without a doubt deserves heaps of praise for how stellar it is. The pick is Goldilocks, it’s just right for everything. It’s very light and feels so comfortable to hold. It’s got a nice rigidness to it that’s great for strumming or lead. Not too thin or not too thick. It has significantly less string noise or plucking sound when hitting strings. You just get nice pure tone. All in all I just can’t recommend this model enough. It might not be everyone’s, but it is my holy grail pick and if I ever lost it I would immediately order a new one with no hesitation.
