Another coat question

How many color bands are there on the hair shaft of a sable GSD? I thought it was three, but can there be more?

I don't think so? It's banded so dark, light, dark.

When my patterned sable female was younger she had dark/light/dark bands. I looked at one today and I see light/dark/light/dark? Maybe the extra white band at the bottom is the root?
