    That’s a lot of sparkle. Guitar like that ought to come with its own unicorn. Bravo, sir. Bravo. I’m a fan.

    I love it!

    I’ve toyed with the idea a number of times of getting my guitar refinished champagne sparkle. Looks sweet.

    I remember back in the late 90's when I was still a music store owner and Fender Custom Shop dealer, we ordered a custom shop Strat in Pink Champaign Sparkle...took forever for it to come in and when it did...we figured it would take forever to sell it....actually, it sold pretty fast...though we sold it at very close to cost. :)

    Man that is nice. I was loving the sparkle until I saw the neck and now I can't not see the neck. Beautiful!
