    There's a thread about it over in the CBOM section, with reports from two people who now have one (last few pages in the thread):

    Only place I was able to find them online was elderly and I ended up ordering the last one they had on order (although they're unsure of when they'll ship yet).

    And the street tacos? Head East on Katella past 9th and turn left into the Food for Less lot. Taco Alto is to the left-awesome-try the Caldo de res soup-you'll love it!

    This showed up on Elderly's site since NAMM: pre-ordering for the new Eastman octave. They're listing at $699 which is a lot lower than I thought I remembered hearing.

    Fabulous post. Glad to see clergy maintaining a sense of humor and humanity. We could use a bit more of both in this world.

    Wow. That might be hard to pass up.

    I think so, I'd order in a heartbeat if I had the dough right now.

    One mandolin-family instrument at NAMM that seemed to escape everyone's notice: a purple electric from Jersey Girl Guitars. I have long been intrigued by these.

    Well, I was interested for a second or two...

    Almost 20" scale length is an odd choice for mandola, more like an octave. That rosette is gorgeous.

    I ordered an Eastman 805/V which also has the antique varnish (distressed) finish. I am receiving it Friday. These guys seem to put a lot of skill into their productions. I would very much like to read more about the Eastman process and watch videos that show their shop if they exist. I have seen guitars being hand-made by Eastman on video and it appears they have a very refined process. This is what I could afford and I am hoping it has the tone and quality I am wanting.

    I found this video. The mandolin portion shows the Eastman artisans handcrafting instruments.
