    Found this color in a Fender Color Chart website and it was used in early to mid 90's Custom Shop Teles. Any toughts on how this finish is done? The vintage Sparkle were done with a Silver Sparkle and then they color it with a translucent paint but this doesn't seem like the case, because the sparkles are holographic...

    I painted this with metallic blue... and then sprinkled Holo flakes into the clear coats......maybe Fender did the same thing?.....

    I bought the flakes on ebay.....

    I have a Black Holoflake guitar, but I've never seen in that color, mines are silver..

    I was wondering if maybe they did a Silver Holographic Sparkle and painted on top of it with a translucent color..
