Before Eastman Strings came along, you just could not get an all solid true carved (not pressed) mandolin in this price point. Well the folks at Eastman have once again pushed the boundaries of what you can expect in an affordable instrument with the introduction of their new MD815V varnish finished F-5 style mandolin!
To get a hand carved F-5 with premium Red spruce top, fiddle-back maple back & sides, radiused fingerboard and a hand applied varnish finish, you are into the five figures. I should say you USED to be looking at five figures … but not anymore.
