  1. Re: Eastman MD314 F-Style Oval Hole Mandolin Discontinued?

    https://reverb.com/item/34012310-eastman-mandolins-md314-cla

    I just saw this on Reverb. Looks like they have 2.
  2. Re: Eastman MD314 F-Style Oval Hole Mandolin Discontinued?

    I canít help with an evaluation of these two models and it seems like the 314 is a bit of a rare bird so maybe not many others have been able to make this comparison either. I havenít played either...

    Re: Learn to play multiple instruments at once?

    I love catmanduís reply. I canít agree more. If youíve got an itch, then scratch it! (Metaphorically, not medically speaking) Mandolin may or may not end up being your number one instrument, but itís...
  4. Re: Eastman MD314 F-Style Oval Hole Mandolin Discontinued?

    Thanks for the info! I know Iíve checked out TMS inventory in the past six weeks, but I mustíve overlooked this one. I was probably drooling at a Pava! Oh, well. I hope to visit the new store soon!...

    I did a little more research and found this. Sorry, no leads other than an overpriced one in Japan. Happy hunting!
  6. Re: Eastman MD314 F-Style Oval Hole Mandolin Discontinued?

    I’ve been researching/watching/buying low end mandolins(under $1000) for the past eighteen months or so and I honestly didn’t know this model existed. I thought the 514 was the lowest priced f...
  7. Re: Any idea where I can find more music like this?

    That was cool! Great suggestions so far. I would say check out the Anthology of American Folk Music. It’s a collection of early 78’s edited by Harry Smith.

    Hey, Iíve been following this thread and Iím in a similar situation. Honestly, I donít think you should get so hung up on the nut width.Thereís other factors involved. Check out the sellerís return...

    Re: Vintage Martin vs. Gibson

    Nothing against the builder, seller, or potential buyer, but you can buy an actual Martin pretty close in range to the price of this. The ďblockyĒ neck heel kinda turns me off. Just my opinion. As...

    Re: Weymann mandolin

    Nice find! I think itís a very cool choice to go vintage over something new. I have a 1923 Mandolute thatís very similar and is well worn in many places, but plays well and has a sweet unique tone....

    Re: Which of these two Mandolins would be better?

    I have no experience with either of these mandolins or seller, but I would go with the army/navy copy(2250). I like the aesthetics and itís a design thatís been around for a century or so. I...

    Re: Know You Rider

    I for one forgive you Charlie. I saw the Dead do China>Rider a bunch in the 80ís and 90ís, but I canít even lie about seeing them in 1970. I was born in 71!
  20. Re: Martin A Style vs. Eastman 315 for Folk & Bluegrass

    I donít think it would be an upgrade. It could provide you with a different tone, but not necessarily better. ďFolkĒ is a wide open term and I would say that your Martin is perfect for any style you...

    Re: Alvarez a400

    Thanks Anglocelt. I find it interesting that someone chose to copy Martins at a time when Martinís mandolin production was on the decline. Maybe they were hoping to fill a void that they could profit...
