Default Satin vs gloss finish

This is 100% correct. This is the neck on my DSS-17. The headstock and heel are still satin, but the middle of the neck has that sheen from the oils. Same around the pick guard where my hand strums. Itís going to be interesting to see how long it takes for the pick to wear down to the bare Sitka.
