If a picture is worth a thousand words, we might have went a little overboard on this one! But how could we resist? What a beauty the Eastman MD304 oval hole mandolin is! The understated satin finish and lack of appointments makes a bold statement. Of course, looks are not why we buy a mandolin, and the Eastman 304 has the tone to back it up. The workmanship is very good throughout and it simply can't be beat at the price point.
Our included Gigbag is the deluxe version with thick foam padding, a neck brace and backpack straps. Or you can choose to upgrade to the wooden hardshell case. We are not so sure the wooden case is actually an upgrade though. The gig bag is great for those on the go. The wooden case, of course offers better protection.
