    Thanks for the pic DoubleE... looks like the headstock does have enough clearance past the neck support/accessory pocket.. so it should work . I'll check one out.
  7. Re: Eastman MD314 F-Style Oval Hole Mandolin Discontinued?

    Hey The Mandolin Store -
    I have a question; Since the 314, 514, 614, etc. all have shorter necks than their counter parts 315, 515, 615, etc - What hard shell case do you offer for the 314 to ensure...
