    Default I'm a fan

    Saw this Kanilea K1-T on eBay, and thought the darker grain on the front looked strange. Then I saw the back, and realized that it was a reflection of the ceiling fan in the gloss finish. However, the markings on the top, up near the fingerboard siill look strange.

    Ask for additional photos to be sure you want it.

    I was going to suggest that they look like shadows on the front, but look like it coould be spalting or grain variation on the back.

    Right, that is a bit odd. I agree about the ceiling fan but the other ones near the fingerboard, it's hard to tell. The back has a dark marking in that same area. Would definitely be good to ask about it.

    This is why I don't like glossy coatings.
    I wonder what it would look like with the fan running?
