    Re: what is the best selling mandolin.

    I'd have to say the very nice cheaper imports like Eastman, Kentucky, Rogue, etc...Some models are a great bang for the buck with a good set-up and better hardware!
  4. Re: Alex Heflin on the Eastman ER-M mandolin

    That Eastman sounds great, I didn't know they made E-mandolins? I've thought about adding one to the stable? A friend has an E-mando by a maker called Mann-I think anyway, its pretty snazzy!
