This Eastman MD515 F-Style Mandolin w/ Hard Foam Case has been very gently owned and is in excellent condition with minimal wear! A few small scratches are present on the tailpiece, but it's otherwise super clean! Looks, plays and sounds fantastic! Original hard foam case has a broken zipper, but it's still functional when using one of the two zipper pulls. We ask that you observe its pictures closely and invite you to contact us with any questions you may have.
