    Default Eastman MD815/V in classifieds

    Last year, I spent a day playing lots of nice mandolins at Morgan Music and the Acoustic Shoppe, including Gibsons, Collings, Northfields, and Webers from $3k to $10k. The one mandolin that dropped my jaw with its volume and tone was a new new aged and varnished MD815/V. (I had seen pics and didnít care for the orangish finish and ďagedĒ look, but it looked better in person.) If I were in the market for a mandolin, Iíd jump at this one at Elderly.

    +1 on the 815v for great tone and volume. Whenever I'm warming up when playing out or at a jam, musicians come up and start asking about it.
    Being right is overrated. Doing right is what matters.
