Back and top of a natural satin finish A model.




My own personal mandolin made in 1983 with a Tone-Gard™. The discoloring on the neck is where the finish has worn off. I prefer it that way as the bare wood has less drag on the hand on hot humid days. 



A 1979  East Indies Rosewood F model. The discoloration on the back is a reflection.
