    Re: Eastman fiberglass cases still available?

    I have the Eastman F style case and the Eastman 814 (F4 style mandolin) wouldn't fit in it. The Eastman 2 point F hole mandolin fits just fine.

    Re: Eastman fiberglass cases still available?

    My Eastman Fiberglass case wouldn't accommodate a shorter neck (oval hole in general with a fret neck join at 12 instead of 15).

  20. Re: And now for something completely different...

    I used to be cheap on stuff. Like is $x worth it? Well, if I figure I'll wear it a few times a year for a few years the cost per wearing gets pretty low. When I consider no one else will have that...
