An awesome F5 from Eastman, this is a mandolin that we can use to demonstrate a clear difference in a varnish finish instrument vs those finished in harder materials like lacquer. Tonally speaking, it is obvious that this mandolin just has a lot more going on than the lacquer counterparts that we stock. It is easily more powerful and responsive and just feel much more "alive" in the hand. Eastman's tasteful factory distressing gives an old world look much like some of the classic violin's patina. Even though this is a brand new instrument, it looks like it has been around for ages!

Adirondack spruce top, flamed maple back/sides/neck, antiqued varnish finish, fully bound in triple binding, radiused ebony fretboard with pearl dot position markers, ebony adjustable bridge, one piece cast tailpiece, Gotoh tuners, adjustable truss rod, 1-3/32" bone nut. Comes with a nice "violin style" hardshell case from Eastman.
