Eastman Mandolins - MD515


This Eastman MD515 F-Style mandolin is real beauty—hand-carved, solid Spruce top, solid Maple back and sides resulting in a presence and sound that is perfect for bluegrass and old time music. Really nice build quality that you'd expect to find in something priced much more. The nitrocellulose lacquer high gloss finish on this particular F style is outstanding too and gives the top a little something extra. The Maple back is beautifully figured and is showcased well from Eastman's superb finish. Great details here with Schaller tuners, a bone nut, cast nickel tailpiece and ivoroid binding on the body and fingerboard. This Eastman MD515 F-Style is a great mando that comes with a hard case and set up from our luthiers too.
