The mandolin is entirely bound with multiple ivoroid bindings that show a black accent line along the upper and lower edges of the body sides, and along the sides of the peghead and the fingerboard.
The varnish finish is exquisitely employed on this mandolin. The light varnish coat gives the mandolin a look of timeless beauty. The luster perfectly shows off the masterful sunburst. The whole look is fabulous, matching the fabulous tone.
