Get a bass guitar then! They're much cooler instruments than guitars anyway.

But seriously, just a regular squier bass is a good instrument already, and they're available for around 300 euros I think. So it would be worth getting one with the sparkle finish. Cause it wouldn't be a Clayton custom if it's not a Precision bass.

I respectfully disagree. Squier might be a decent bass to start with I suppose. But one could pay a bit more and get a made in Mexico Fender that will be made and sound better.

A bit of patience and saving will pay off. T'is my thought.

Limited to 60 pieces worldwide. I imagine they will be hard to get and pricey.

Cool that they are making them... they should make the lilac purple sparkle too.

You should hear the uproar over it on "Bass Talk" it's digressed into one of those 'he's a shitty player so why should he deserve a signature bass from Fender' thing. So silly. Personally, knowing the man's been playing the Precision with the Jazz necks for years, I dig it and the fact that Abigail Ybarra's doing the pickups on the 60 pieces being produced alone would make it worth whatever price Fender decides to put on it.

Now, I have to admit my new personal favorite is the candy-apple red Reverso...that is the best finish on that bass yet - it's absolutely gorgeous close up!

Agreed, that red finish is incredibly sweet. Wish I could get one of those, but I still haven't won the lottery.

I'd love if they'd make a budget version of the lilac sparkle, for people like me that would love a Clayton signature but can't afford multiple Ks on a bass.

Right and I don't play so were I to get one it'd be a very, very expensive wall decoration and those deserve to be played (both the Fender and the Warwick).

I just have a very deep appreciation for bass...hehe oh, wait. That's the bass player!

Thanks! Ok first of it was a pain in the arse but fun!

Step one: We removed everything from the guitar, Pick guard/Pick-up,Neck and the Bridge.

Quick Question: My strat pick-guard had the pick up's in it, I was wondering if every strat is like that.

Step two: Sand the guitar down to the wood.

Step Three: Go out and buy the color paint of your choosing and which ever color glitter you want and lacquer, The paint i got had the lacquer in it already

Step Four: Go and paint!

Step Five: Let it sit there for a few hours.

Step Six: Sprinkle Glitter around the guitar.

Step Seven: Let it sit there for at least a week.

Step Eight: Put all the shit back on!


And Enjoy the guitar!

Nothing wrong with "Do It Yourself". For me? I'd rather spend the money and send it to Marty Bell. I don't make a mess that way. And it comes out all sparkly.

I agree, The only reason i did it myself was because i will never have the money for a paint job, And i don't care to much about this guitar so i thought why not!

and p.s Do you have a sparkle guitar?
