    Is that a glare by the treble f-hole, or finish wear?

    Mandofiddle....That is a glare in the photo. However there is varnish wear on the top and back and all thru out. The finish is also worn off the back of the neck. It has been played alot!

    Hey Mav, is the sunburst on that much smaller and darker like the Steffey model. It doesn't look like the standard sunburst on the Master Models.
    If F-model mandolins have F-holes then why don't A-model mandolins have A-holes???

    Man, I was busy at work and just got to the post. I knew Mike played this one. Mike and Steffey are pretty good friends. Steffey is one awesome player and a great person.

    So, it basically is a Steffey model in varnish? Does it have a flowerpot or fleur de lis?

    Kevin. They are J-74 strings and yes Tortise pick. May you rest in peace little Turtle

    Jeremy. It doesnt have any other Steffey appointments other than the cutoff fretboard and a little smaller burst. It is 100 percent master model. Has the flowerpot, Loar fretboard width and waverly tuners..

    levin4now--

    The watch looks like it could be a stainless Rolex Submariner with date (but I could be wrong).

    Levin4now.. The watch in question is a fossil of 2002 vintage, slightly worn, but keeps perfect time. The hardware is silver and gold plating.

    Can anybody guess what kind of book that is in the floor. The white book that is.
