It was hard to contain our excitement when we heard that Bourgeois Guitars were teaming up with Eastman Strings to introduce the first Bourgeois mandolins. This glorious M5-A lives up to our expectations, with an approach to quality control and design that's all Bourgeois, but at a price point more in line with a high-end Eastman. Featuring a torrefied Adirondack spruce top for a powerful, mature sound, with impressively figured Bosnian maple for the back, sides, and neck, this mandolin packs a lot of punch without losing its complex high treble frequencies. Aesthetics stay simple and elegant, and as with Dana Bourgeois' guitars, tend to be vintage inspired, with brushed nickel hardware and classic multi-layer binding and purfling. We're very excited to start carrying these great mandolins and think you will be, too. Included in the price is a polyfoam case.
