    Oh, my - that's a win.
    Do you match the sparkles w/ a string tie or Nudie suit?
    Peace - Deeve

    Sparkles are not really my thing, although both these "greens" are pretty cool.
    Maybe if I were playing arenas, and the spotlights hit me.....that might be amazing. ;)

    This one above is particularly classy... :cool:

    Dark Bottle Greens are often nice - unfortunately I couldn't have mine done in Sparkle, but only in Metallic... :( Well, it's better than nothing ! ;)

    @sleazy pot pie,

    The color used on my "Fake Lefty Dano 59 SolidBody" is an Alfa-Romeo paint called "Minerva Verde". I do not have any reference on hand, but maybe my luthier pal who did the finish could give a more accurate reference, if he had not dropped the can ! IIRC, he bought it from Spain, and I guess that it could be this :

    https://www.pinturaparacoche.com/315A-VERDE-MINERVA-ALFA-ROMEO

    Another paint code, from a French website, showing the same references :

    https://code.peinturevoiture.fr/82561.html

    This is typically a "Bottle Green Metallic" - here's an Alfa 164 in Minerva Verde :

    Some other pics of the guitar - as you will note, the color varies neatly under light exposure :

    That’s great. And no binding. That is what has been tripping me up. My body has a German carve and I have never done binding, so I didn’t want to learn on this project.

    mall of these green guitars have really inspired me .
    Thanks guys.

    I want my next guitar to be Sparkle. Ideally silver, orange, or gold.

    Green has to be my favourite colour for guitars. Congratulations.
