Even the very starting point of the Eastman Mandolin range offers players genuinely handcrafted construction and elevated all solid tone woods with Nitrocellulose finishing. This most extraordinary range of Mandolins takes you down a more authentic and traditional journey and produces some impressive and lively tone responsive tone. Starting with the MD304 and 305 and the F style MD315, even these models have wonderful performance and just look like a properly built expertly created instrument rather than a mass-produced uninspiring model. We find the MD505, MD504, MD604 are very sought after, and once you start moving up into the MD515/514 and MD614/615 models, the results are truly outstanding. We always have MD815 Mandolins on order, but it's not always possible to get them quickly enough as they are all painstakingly made one step at a time.
