    Very nice. I'm looking at Eastman mandolins as well. I personally would not pin stripe it but it's your mandolin . . . .

    It is well built and a Life Time warranty sounds really nice. This model has hand carved flamed solid mahogany back and sides with a hand carved solid spruce top.

    Nice. It is the hand carving that attracts me. My local store has a decent variety I need to try.

    Pinstripes might not be right. How about plaid? Camo? Swirls?

    Loverly!
    I never took a close look at a mando before.
    The headstock is about the same length as the neck!
