Eastman MD-515-SB Sunburst Gloss Finish Mandolin Exc

Photo for Ad 169448

This mandolin is a superb example of Eastman’s dedication to consistent quality, and features a solid carved Spruce top, along with solid carved Maple back and sides resulting in a presence and sound that is perfect for bluegrass and old-time music, and a tonality and playability to compete with instruments 3x its price. With its F-style scroll and gorgeous gloss-finished body it has that desired woody chop that will ring out in a jam.
It was purchased brand new last summer and has been lightly played, with only a small scuff or two (see last photos). It has just been setup by renowned New York luthier, Evan Gluck, and sounds great, plays easily, sporting new D’Addario J74 strings, and includes the original Eastman hard-shell case. It’s a well-known secret that Eastman is the best value for a fine mandolin.
