    From left to right:

    Gold Sparkle
    Burnt Apple
    White Sparkle
    Gremlin Green Sparkle
    Glacier Blue Sparkle
    Black Sparkle
    Blue Dawn
    Autum Redrise
    Silver Sparkle

    From what I understand BP has a Gremlin Green Sparkle Albert Lee, though I've never seen any pictures of it. I'd like too see some pictures.

    Gold Sparkle seems to be the most rare, if you want to use that term. Sweet color though.

    GW, those are great pics. I will add some of those later in the week. Does he have a pic of just the Gold sparkle anywhere?

    Copperhead Bronze

    Nice job smallequestrian. I'm honored to have you use some pics of my Copperhead Bronze SR5. This was a really good idea because EBMM has produced some of the most interesting and original colors of any other instrument manufacturer out there.

    I also wanted to clarify something in regards to the Copperhead Bronze finish. You have it listed as a solid color which is fine, but I would actually call it a metallic finish. The sparkles aren't as big and defined as the "sparkle" colors, but it does have a metallic sparkle to it similar to many automotive finishes.

    I guess I could make the distinguishment(is that a word?). The problem is that a lot of the solid finishes have a "spakleness" to them, like Metal flake Green, Medallion Gold, Lavender Pearl (all of which I own or have owned). And then there are other finishes that you could say have sparkle in them, but I wouldn't consider metallic though. Its a fine line and maybe not a necessary one to make. I'll look into it, but it may not be a high priority for right now.
