More details about Eastman MDO605-GB Octave Mandolin

Eastman MDO605-GB. Octave mandolins are becoming more popular with singers who are looking for something other than a guitar to support their vocals. Being an octave below a standard mandolin they have a fuller tone and more sustain due to almost double the string length.

Also,having much longer necks they are also a very capo friendly, making key changes or using more comfortable chord shapes easy to achieve.

This Eastman MDO605 is an example of just how good they are at making what is essentially a niche instrument and to a very high standard of craftmanship. The timbers used are high grade spruce and maple with a glorious golden sunburst that is finely graduated, none of that light in the middle and dark on the edges that so many bad sunbursts can have. This all has no effect on the sound of any instrument whatsoever but ot speaks volumes about who made it.

It’s kind of a calling card and the calling card here is gold embossed.
