    I'm a big fan of sparkle finishes and that's going to be so cool! Nice work.

    Thank you everyone! I had a photographer friend reach out to me after I expressed how difficult it was to photograph this thing last night. Hopefully I can get something that accurately captures how it looks in person!!!

    I had one of those in the orange, and your refin looks better. Now just carefully affix some automotive pinstriping tape all the way 'round the headstock -- as faux-"binding" -- then overspray with some clear lacquer and you'll be done!
