Eastman El Rey Mandolin ER-M Classic Finish


Instrument Categories:

Eastman El Rey ER-M  Mandolin is very cool instrument that shares DNA with the Eastman archtop El Rey models, creating a contemporary looking electric mandolin.

The Eastman El Rey ER-M features a solid one piece mahogany sides and back with a solid maple top. The mahogany provides enhanced mid range warmth and the maple top has a focused note fundamental with clear top end snap. The two f holes provide a bit of traditional mandolin looks but the single cutaway and lower bout design really give it that jazz box feel.

The Lollar Mandolin Humbucker on the Eastman El Rey ER-M is controlled by top mounted volume and tone pots, the tone using a 1950’s style Orange Drop capacitor, with Ebony knobs. This matches beautifully with the ebony fingerboard and bridge and adds an extra touch of class to the aesthetics.

The El Rey is a unique mandolin with classy looks and great tone, both acoustically and amplified!

Supplied with an original Eastman hard shell case.
