Eastman 305 Mandolin



The Eastman 305 Mandolin is currently among the best deals out there. Eastman's quality is top notch and although we wouldn't call the price "inexpensive", The MD305 mandolin is priced well below most others that are anywhere near this quality.

Individually hand-built using traditional materials & Old World craftsmanship. Eastman's entry level mandolin is actually a whole lot nicer than what we would call entry. These are hand carved in the Eastman shop in the same fashion as the higher models. The difference is the satin finish, stamped tailpiece, basic tuners, and lack of fingerboard binding. All of the tone and playability are still there! Includes Eastman gigbag and lifetime warranty.
