    Sparkle always make a guitar sound better! There is no guitar that cannot look even better with a sparkle finish added!

    Runs out of the room yelling, "That's too much sparkle!" I'm going to start a new wave, big hair band called "Metallic Flake."

    I can’t ever seem to get a really good picture of the Broadway Jade Penguin top. Although not a sparkle top it is a very fine metallic! Looks great in the light. Sometimes I wish it was a bigger flake so it would stand out even more.

    Of course the picture doesn't do it justice. It's a G3166.

    Used to have one of these beauties; unfortunately, that particular example felt like a cinderblock hanging from my shoulder.
