    Re: I'm buying a Mandolin

    Of those listed, my vote is for the Eastman 315. Mine is better than any of the KM 630s or Washburns I've played. If you're willing to go A style Kentucky 505 or a used 900/950 might also get you a...

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    I own a banjo and can play a few songs on it, but I don’t say that I PLAY the banjo. Mostly play 3 finger styles and have dabbled in clawhammer. I still pull it out now and then, but mandolin gets...

    Re: comparing Eastman Mandola's

    Unfortunately, you really need to play both to compare. My 315 mandolin sounds better than a several of the 615 and 815s I’ve played, but the tuners, bridge, and tailpiece (mine’s the older stamped...

    Any and all of the above. Throw in cashier’s check and personal check (with a clearance wait) as well. Depends on the tech capabilities and location of the person with whom you’re dealing.

    Re: Ibanez No 516 Mandolin

    You’re correct, I’m not saying it’s a 510. The label clearly reads 516. But, the 516 was probably discontinued somewhere along the way and the 510 is what looks closest to taking its place, at least...

    Re: Ibanez No 516 Mandolin

    There’s not a ton of info out there, but looks like the 510 A/E they’re selling now. Most likely laminate spruce top and laminate maple back and sides. If the top is solid, it’s like pressed, not...

  15. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    Started the year with 9 mando family instruments, but have whittled it down to 7. All a bit different, and most lower cost instruments I bought before I could afford better stuff, so they’re not...
