Its all down to personal taste. I found that it has good tone, not too bright yet not muddy either. The looks are plain yet attractive. Playing the Mandolin was a surprise. Its very playable indeed. Im new to this instrment but an hour per day over a long weekend saw me knocking out a few bars of William Tell.
Rated 5 out of 5

This is a great instrument, it arrived well set up and is a pleasure to play , it looks and sounds great and comes with a good quality gig bag . I would recommend Eastman mandolins and Eagle Music to anyone in the market for an instrument

A quality mandolin. It was set up with a very playable action. The tone is clear and mellower compared to other mandolins I've owned. A good step-up from a basic mandolin
