Used Eastman ER-M El Rey Mandolin w/ Hardshell Case -Due 5/2

Photo for Ad 204024


The mandolin’s status in the world of acoustic fretted instruments is indisputable. The time has come to make an electric model that stands on its own merits. This new Eastman ER-M El Rey mandolin is an adaptation of the classic archtop guitar designed by master luthier Otto D’Ambrosio roughly 15 years ago. D’Ambrosio, who named the model after his old band, has found the development of this series the beginning of a new era.

The build includes a solid block chambered mahogany back, a maple top with the f-holes, and the signature El Rey contoured cutaway; while electric features include a Lollar humbucker pickup custom designed for the El Rey. The shape, string length and tuning are very much what you’d expect from a traditional mandolin. But the sound offers a whole new electric edge. The clarity and signal strength of the original Lollar designed pickup opens a world of possibilities when introduced to the nearly endless offering of FX pedals available in today’s marketplace.
