    $150 certainly qualifies. Well done!

    I was looking at a K1000 and the K1050 among other options, including some vintage MIJ axes.

    I ended up with the Eastman 515. It was on sale from The Mandolin Store, and came with a case. Not only was it priced nicer than the K950's I had seen, with no case included, it has a lifetime warranty. Hello, no-brainer.

    Just saying: hand made quality, better pricing, case included and Lifetime Warranty. FWIW, mine sounded awesome out of the box 18 months ago, and even better now. Those who knew me when I would not touch the brand are stunned #IPlayEastman.
    Axes: Rigel A Natural #1774 w/mods, Andrew Jerman Irwin-style 5 string electric "Stealie", Eastman 515, Eastman El Ray, Crafter M85E, Dillion 335 style, Grandmom's solid-mahogany teens bent-top, Baglamas 002
    Boards: Acoustic Electric
    Amps: Fishman Loudbox 100; Rivera Clubster Royale Recording Head; Laney Cub 10 & Cab, Peavey Studio Pro

    Your quote is so true.

    The KM-380 has an A-5 style body. Kentucky’s KM-380S was a previous model and identical looking. These were above the beginner models in features, and price and have been discontinued from production.
