2021 Eastman MD505cc acoustic electric mandolin with hard shell case.
I took this in trade a couple of years ago, and I was surprised by the quality. I've been playing mandolin for 40+ years, and have played a lot of high end instruments. This is no Gibson or Collings, but it's a very nice intermediate level instrument. It is all solid, hand carved wood-maple back sides and neck, and spruce top with ebony fingerboard and bridge. I added a K&K Twin pickup, and it sounds great plugged in. It sounds very good plugged in. I just had the frets dressed, so it plays like new. It has a couple of small dings from use, but is in overall excellent condition. I've been using it in an acoustic band, but I've decided to use my vintage Gibson with a mic instead. Great mandolin for a beginner, and intermediate player that wants to upgrade, or someone that needs an electrified instrument. $700 firm (Retail is $999+ $100 for the pickup)
