Confusion, no doubt

pics please. was this a single MTO?
They look fine to me. Yes, they may be slightly darker than you want, but with wear you will get a fine patina naturally. If they are certainly unacceptable to you, I recommend starting with some renovateur to remove the excess dark polish and/or top layers.

Rosewood can morph into something really fetching and very different than Gorse or Mahagony. Mahogany can be shifted to something closer to walnut with the introduction of dark brown polish, or it can be kept near its original color, or it can be lightened materially. I know a...
@laufer - is it true you are considering a pingrain Nevis? That would be epic.
