    Default Got my Eastman mando in the mail today: Manzanita

    This is a used Eastman I traded for which I got in the mail today. I'm still working on the action a bit. There is a pretty noticeable bow in the neck. I adjusted the truss rod relief a bit but couldn't get the bow out too well. So I lowered the action at the bridge, probably went too far. I think I'll have someone plane the neck down and put medium banjo frets in sometime. For now, here's my take on Manzanita.

    Nice playing, but it sure looks like that mando was not treated well by the previous owner. Too bad the truss rod couldn't relieve the bow.
