    These have T-Armonds, if that makes any difference.

    It's the perfect accent to a purple guitar if you're a Minnesotan.

    I found adding T-Armonds to my red sparkle made it too middy, even with 1meg pots.

    @Uncle Daddy - considering the problems you're having with the red sparkle, and having recently acquired another guitar you really like, maybe it's time you consider unloading that red sparkle;):rolleyes:

    Love the purple. Good looking guitar. What we used to call Easter egg purple.
    Purple's my favorite color.

    There’s no way to prevent the gold hardware from tarnishing?

    Gorgeous axe.

    My Wildwood FSR Duo Jet is black with gold hardware... Perfect for a Steelers fan like me!

    Theoretically you could meticulously coat it with something to protect the finish like a poly clear coat but I don't know what would work with metal or gold.

    I watched this whole video. He's an amazing player but sometimes his chicken picking noodling is a bit much for me. I notice in a lot of his videos he's going as fast as he can and it's hard to tell what the guitar sounds like. That's not the case in this video. He's bringing out the best of everything in this guitar.

    I agree with this, yeah he is entertaining to watch but sometimes it's just too much, I know I might get slammed for this but I also find some of the sound clips on the TVJ website the same, yes it's great playing but some of them are just a 1000 notes in a second.
