#4095, classic, with had shell case.
After the success of Eastman’s line of hand-carved, all solid wood mandolins it was only a matter of time before their master luthiers brought their skills to bear on the other members of the mandolin family. The Eastman mandola (not offered here) is a solid f-style instrument with a dark sophisticated tone. The Eastman mandocello utilizes all the best features of a great Eastman archtop guitar – it is essentially a non-cutaway, prewar high-end archtop instrument with f-holes. By accenting the lower fundamentals with ringing archtop overtones Eastman has produced an instrument that they say matches in quality and perhaps surpasses in beauty any mandocello in the market today. The Eastman Mandola model 615 (just so you know) features Schaller nickel-plated tuners, a single-ply headstock, back binding, and 3-ply binding on top. This, the Eastman Mandocello model 805 features a highly flamed maple back and sides, spirit varnish finish, gold-plated hardware, 3-ply binding on the headstock and body, as well as side binding. It lists for $2395 but that’s not your price. Your price is but a mere shadow of the List.
