Well, easy.

Have both picks on rails, and slide one and then the other into place.

If it's going to function as a one pickup guitar . . . why not?

Having them out makes it easier, and all you have to do is grab one in a split second. This is what his invention and others are about. Cutting 3-5 seconds down to 1/2 a second, which sometimes can mean the world at a live show.
Fortunately for me, I'm a few years past the really-baggy-pants-look-cool-on-me stage of my life, so none of my pockets have deep folds. I don't ever recall losing significant time searching my pocket. I'd say 1-2 seconds would be out on the long end of time... So I guess in order to not have to think about pick holders, it's nice to wear pants with normal pocket dimensions.

...oh, and I thought the hi-jacking of this thread was hilarious, too - and I'm interested in that as well. It would be fun to have easily swappable pickups (like as easy as a string change easy, maybe not as easy as changing in between songs...)

Anyone else lose picks because they fall out of pockets when sitting down?

Making a modular pickup system is interesting me, I may have to think about this one.

It's interesting to see how inventive everyone seems to be around here. Good stuff. I look forward to the day when we get a Christian marketing some of their own inventions. Pretty cool. I would be very interested in seeing Chesh's design!

I was always taught by my guitar mentor that playing guitar is about always finding the easiet way to play. and thats what ths invention is going to help people play on stage.
I just use the Force. Mission Accomplished!

If you could invent a robot that can tell when I have a pick in my hand and when I don't, and if I don't it somehow gets one into my hand perfectly in less than 0.07 seconds, I would be impressed and pay at least $10 for it...Canadian.

...yes, but the robot would also have to know when I want my Capo, slide, and ebow, and get those to me also, then maybe $15-$30

Seriously though, they need to expand that thing that clips on to the mic stand and holds your picks to hold slides (which they already do) capos, and ebows, that would be sweet.
