⚌Reduced‼  Breedlove Quartz OF A-Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2005

The Breedlove Quartz OF is an A-Style mandolin, the ‘O’ indicating an Oval body and the F, F Holes. Like other Breedlove mandolins, it has been out of production since 2016. ‘Quartz’ is the term Breedlove assigned to their entry-level US built mandolins.   That name is possibly a reference to a mountain not far from the Breedlove shop, then located in Tumalo, Oregon.

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.
