❌SOLD❌ Eastman MD915SB F Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2016

❌SOLD❌   Eastman MD915SB F Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2016

The Eastman MD915SB F Style mandolin follows the classic bluegrass style instruments pioneered in the early part of the 20th century by Orville Gibson and Lloyd Loar. These instruments departed steeply from all previous mandolins, in that they merged violin family concepts with the mandolin design. Traditional European mandolins generally had bowl backs and flat tops, which limited both their comfort and potential for delivering sound at a higher volume.

❌SOLD❌  Eastman MD515 F Style Mandolin Classic Tint, 2017

The Eastman MD515 mandolin is a high quality yet reasonably priced rendering on the classic Gibson F-style instruments introduced in the 1920s during Lloyd Loar’s tenure at Gibson. One of Orville Gibson’s radical innovations was to bring violin family construction principles into the world of guitars and mandolins, leading directly to the arched top instruments we find commonplace today.

❌SOLD❌ Eastman AR803ce Archtop Electric Guitar Sunburst, 2009

The Eastman AR803ce archtop falls in the category of the ‘Jazz Box’ guitar – providing the warm, rich, rounded tone an arched top guitar provides so well. Eastman is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of hand made, carved top instruments, with a background in violin and cello family construction. They pride themselves on following European luthiery traditions, particularly those flowing from 17th century German builders. At the time, many of the the most respected Italian builders were actually German!

❌SOLD❌ Eastman MD904D Two Point Mandolin Natural, 2010

❌SOLD❌  Eastman MD904D Two Point Mandolin Natural, 2010

The Eastman MD904D Two Point oval hole mandolin follows the modified A Style or ‘teardrop’ pioneered by Orville Gibson around 1900. This model perhaps most resembles the Gibson A5 two point, built from 1957 to 1979.   As an oval hole model, it will have a somewhat warmer tone compared to the percussive ‘chop’ of an F-hole model.  Featuring a solid, carved Sitka Spruce top paired with carved, solid Flame Maple back, with matching Flamed Maple for the sides and neck and binding, and with gold plated hardware, this Eastman MD904D Two Point was built during 2010 near Beijing and is in good shape with minor wear.
