    I am hugely excited about a couple of bodies that I sent out to Steve Dikkers (Buckocaster on here) and Mark Moore (under his own name Mark Moore here).

    The Blue Sparkle and bound body was finished by steve, and the Black paisley by Mark. I can't wait get them here and to see them in person!

    How ugly. Man, I'd be asking for my money back....

    Man, that black paisely is killer. And I always love a sparkly one, especially with binding.

    Thanks! Steve is doing a blue sparkle peghead to match. I am excited.

    Mark also does a bunch of cool paisley colors. He often has one or two on eBay.

    I think what I like the most is that each color is probably the least used of that type. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a black paisley other than a crook and the sparkles I see, well, with buck involved it's a rainbow of colors, but in generally they are silver or something more subdued. The blue is a great choice and so is that black. They aren't something you see every day. Ok, maybe here you might stand a chance of seeing them everyday, but not out in the wild.

    I am super excited and will be assembling the Blue sparkle one first.

    One word : KEEPER
    I plan for it to have a special place in that family and never leave. I have some voodoo Florance pickups for it, vintage keys and compensated bridge....white pearl topped knobs and white switch tip......

    I am soooooooo. Excited!

    I had no earthly idea that I desired a blue sparkle tele until I saw that.
