Anodized

A finish given to metal by the process of electrolysis. It is often used erroneously when referring to Fender’s gold-tinted aluminum pickguards of the 1950s, which were actually “alodined.” Alodine is a microscopic thin film commonly used on aluminum parts to aid in corrosion resistance and also to provide an excellent surface prep for paint.
