Re: Student searching for the right mandolin
I've not played the Kentucky 505 but I have played Eastman mandolins (804 F-oval and 805D 2 point f holes) they have a pronounced V shaped neck with a narrower neck width than Breedloves, Webers, Morgan Monroes that I have played and compared them too. I would recomend trying to get your hands on any Eastman to try it out. Our Café Sponsors can also assist you in your search. I've dealt with the Mandolin Store and been very happy.
