There are three options on this mandolin:
1) the finish is all glossy all over – normally it is matte (satin) all over.
2) the finish is sunburst. Normally it is natural.
3) it has a factory installed K&K pickup system.
These three options do, certainly, add to the price of the mandolin.Nevertheless, it is a very fine and exciting instrument and immediately suitable for on-stage use.
