    Hi, Just finished my latest Sparkle Tele (Bass) and just thought I'd post a pick of the family...
    Three are from the Covid projects.
    Take Care!

    Very nice. I've got a silver but I really need a champagne and a red.

    I love bass boat guitars.
    Double bound Candy apple red with a metal flake finish makes me weak in the knees

    Nice. *Said with awe and << respect >>*

    As others have said, the red one is a knockout.
    I also really like the silver with the white guard. I have a thing for maple necks.

    Thanks, the “red” one is actually orange. 5BE6B22A-3E35-4E02-AAD9-73480E36417E.jpeg 688C0126-1B48-493A-8B43-964327F338F1.jpeg E9B30D54-3FCB-4C6E-AD2E-3D36370933CC.jpeg

    Hi.

    Ha ha, I was thinking something similar as I was reading the OP, then scrolled down to find this.

    Oh, and to the original poster, nice axes.*

    Are you finishing the bodies or do you have a good source for sparkle bodies? I'm struggling to find a really good purple or pink metal flake body.

    Hi again.

    Sorry, forgot to add this bit.

    I find it really interesting how aesthetic things work or don't work for folk. Usually I don't really like sparkle guitars. I don't particularly dislike them either, they just don't really speak to me - I'm a slight shade to the negative side of indifferent. But all of these look really great to me. I have no idea why. Probably the combo of colour(s) and degree of flake.

    I thinks it's the binding that really set's off the Sparkles. Least I think they all have binding in the photo. Still cool looking guitars!

    Nice guitars but you need to be careful about getting all that shiny dust in the paint!
