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!

Eastman MD515 F-Style Mandolins

Eastman MD515 F-Style Mandolins

Eastman MD515 mandolins are a high quality yet reasonably priced rendering of 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 that are commonplace today. The Eastman MD515 models are part of Eastman’s entry level instrument lines, but that doesn’t mean that they have skimped on quality, just on decoration.
