Get Traditional Styling And Hand Craftsmanship With The Eastman MD815V F Style Mandolin

Eastman Antique Varnish Series handcrafted mandolins pay tribute to traditional build methods and body styles, and deliver a balanced, refined tone. Eastman is committed to crafting the finest instruments for musicians throughout the world.

AN ICONIC STANDARD

F-style or Florentine mandolins are the epitome of fine craftsmanship and beauty. A bluegrass icon, and for good reason. The ornate carved scroll adds mass to the instrument that helps create balance for a standing player. Known for having more treble attack and percussive "chop" than oval hole instruments, F-hole mandolins are the first choice in ensemble settings where volume competition can be an issue.

COMMITMENT TO CRAFT

There is no substitute for skilled craftsmanship. At Eastman, each instrument is given the attention to detail required to ensure that it reaches its maximum potential. Hand-scalloped bracing and precision tap tuning are just two examples of the way they differentiate themselves. Considering the outward beauty of an Eastman mandolin, it's sometimes easy to overlook the same skill and artistry is also applied to the inside.

QUALITY, CARE, PASSION

From skilled luthiers who painstakingly carve carefully selected woods, to the team who hand varnish and age the Antique Varnish Series, Eastman mandolin craftsmanship is rooted in the same obsession that led them to build the best violin, violas, cellos, and basses. They continue to provide the same responsive service and outstanding products that have helped them emerge as a leader in the world of modern acoustic instruments.
