Mandola-Eastman MDA315 In UK

Photo for Ad 179481

For sale is this Eastman MDA 315 Mandola. It is in excellent condition with no marks, fret wear or any issues at all.

Scale length is a friendly 16" and easy for mandolin players to handle.

Straight neck. Ebony bridge, Satin/matt finish and a great sound. I've handled a couple of MDA 61s and although they had binding etc I don't remember them any better thatn this in terms of sound/playability/balance etc.

I helped a good friend with it when he bought it as he didn't want too heavy strings. Basically just wanted to play his mandolin tunes and get a deeper sound. I put on 13, 20, 30 and 40 and tuned it to normal mandola, CA and it works well. However, as he has decided to sell it due to hand problems I have ordered some slightly heavier strings which should be here any day and may be the preference of someone wanting a bigger fatter sound. These strings will be 13.5 22 33 and 44. My experienced opinion is that will work great with the instrument in terms of volume, tone, balance and playability.

£650 is firm price. Postage at cost. Probably £10 for UK. It has the original Eastman gig bag but not really the best for posting so we'd wrap it up with box/bubblewrap etc or you could collect.

May consider all solid wood F-hole mandolin some sort of exchange. Cash adj either way as I am in the market for a good F-hole mandolin.

Any questions welcome. Contribution to Cafe if it sells.
