    My gold one is sparkly! Everyone guitar I player I know hates this guitar. I love it. The fat neck and tiny frets do take some getting used to...

    Here are two of mine. Both are Double Bound CS Models. Silver is a '64 NOS Don Rich/Buck Owens recreation, the gold is a '60 Closet Classic.

    Gorgeous guitar in LPB Sparkle! I don't know why these aren't more popular and are pretty much special order customs. Hmm.

    Very nice! I wish I could have found one like this with maple fretboard, both of mine are ebony.

    Close, but it is just called “Blue Sparkle”.

    Fantastic looking guitars. Although I do like relic guitars I think when it comes to sparkle guitars they look better with out the wear. Sparkle guitars are meant to be flashy. And I think that putting lots of wear on them takes away from that. And I'm a BP signature silver sparkle owner.
    I love that matching headstock on the silver.

    ...real heavy, though, that particular example.

    Very nice, I got the pleasure of meeting John a long time ago, when he toured with Elton John. Super cool Dude!

    Sparkle sure looks cool. My '98 American Std. Strat that is bedazzled in rhinestones is a dark metallic purple with subtle sparkle flake but not as dramatic as in the OP.
