A good, well-made mandolin as an upgrade to my Ozark 2001 (which was very good for the price and the difference between them is not huge though I had added a new bridge and lowered the Ozark strings). The Eastman has much better tone on the lower strings. Accurate intonation. The fret wire ends are a bit sharp as are the corners of the bridge. I much prefer the satin finish of this model to the glossy 404 I recently tried as my left hand can get a bit sticky on gloss. Excellent gig bag.
