    I have a problem. I realize this. Certain I will not find a cure any time soon....

    My wife says sparkles make everything better, though!

    2019 Custom Shop Les Paul Standard Black Sparkle. This one is built based on a 60's reissue VOS platform. One piece back and slim 60's neck. Actually, the neck seems just like the neck on all of my Les Paul Customs - in profile, size, and feel. Awesome guitar that plays like melted butter with 46-10's. It sports Custombuckers currently and in honesty, not a fan of them so they are being replaced with a 57 classic in the neck and 57 classic plus in the bridge (both from 2019). I like the warm tone of the 57 classic in the neck and the bite of the 57 classic plus in the bridge.

    Anyhow, here it is!

    Yes! Yes you do…have a problem.
    How will you enjoy looking at that sparkle? At what angle makes you giddy with eye candy pleasure.
    At what moment do you relish the most when you wrap your hands around it. Touching that candy.
    Squeezing pleasurable notes of sonic sweetness from it.
    Yes… you and I, as well as others, have a problem.
    We love stuff like this and we can’t get enough.
    Congratulations!
