We are blown away by the Eastman mandolins. You have to play one to believe the difference. The level of workmanship is top notch. You can easily spend $5000 and not get a better mandolin.
Similar to the 600 series but with the following upgrades: Gold or nickel plated hardware, highly flamed maple, back and sides, 3-ply binding on the headstock and body, as well as side binding.
The 800 model mandolins are handcarved from solid select spruce with highly flamed maple backs and sides with full ivoroid bindings. Features include - ebony fingerboard, adjustable bridge, gold plated Schaller tuners with mother-of-pearl buttons and finished in a sunburst finish.
Oblong case with accessory compartments included. As always, the mandolin is gone through here in the Folkmusician shop. Not just a simple inspection/setup, but whatever it takes to bring out the best in the particular instrument.
Eastman Mandolins are covered by a Lifetime warranty.
