2008 Eastman 605 A model mandolin for sale, with LR Baggs Radius pickup and gigbag.
I bought this instrument in 2008 at the Mandolin Store. I played the four Collings A models in the store and then played every less expensive instrument. This Eastman stood out from the pack, sounding every bit as good as the benchmark Collings instruments to my ear.
I gave it a speed neck, defretted it, radiused the neck a little more to 9" and installed slightly larger fretwire. But as the years went by and my chops improved, I realized that I needed a wide nut instrument. So I bought a wide nut mando recently and must sell this great sounding Eastman (which has a 1 3/32" nut) under the one-in-one-out program. So no trades.

Asking $550 for the mandolin plus Eastman gigbag, which includes FedEx Ground shipping to the lower 48, carefully packed (I pack well and have never had an issue shipping this way). Paypal is fine. Usual 48 hour trial; I will deduct the actual outbound shipping cost from the refund if you return (I've sold many instruments here without any returns). Donation to Cafe.
