2010 Eastman MD-514 Mandolin

(SN 7935) Near mint condition - looks unplayed. Sunburst lacquer finish. Looking for a old F2 or F4 but put off by the prices? This mandolin is your answer. It is built like a Gibson F4, with the oval soundhole and 10 frets clear of the body. Back, sides and neck are figured maple, top is solid spruce, the unbound fretboard and bridge are ebony. The fretboard is radiused with a nut of 1 3/16 inch, and is shortened when made to eliminate pick click. Scale is 13 7/8 inch, same as a Gibson. Has the pearl logo in the peghead, top bound only, unbound fingerboard. All finish and hardware is original. No pickguard as made. Shows very little pick wear, neck is straight, frets are fine. No repairs or refinish noted. Has the big round sound typical of the oval soundhole instruments which is excellent for Celtic, old time and jazz. Comes with the original Eastman fiberglass hard case.
