Eastman MDC804

The Eastman Company is known for, among other things, their absolutely top-notch mandolins, hand-carved from the best solid woods to the most exacting specifications, and they are fabulous; this is why we carry them and only them in the arena of new mandolins. What is much lesser known is that they also make mandolas and mando-cellos, and we‘ve got a spectacular and most unusual one here. Their standard mando-cello is based on their 16” carved-top guitar body, similar to the original landmark Gibson L-5 acoustic guitars of the 1920s, with F-holes, but with four pairs of strings. We have just gotten one of only two examples currently available with an oval soundhole, in the style of Gibson’s mando-cellos of the early 20th century, and it is stupendous in every way. The sound is rich and deep, much more so than any instrument with F-holes could ever be; the finish is the classic deep wine-red of earlier instruments as well. Action is as ever with all Eastman products; crisp. We invite you to try out this unique instrument; you will be as hugely impressed as we are. $1995 w/hsc
