Does anyone understand the Eastman serial numbers?
Mine is the 605, A5 style mandolin made in 2005 with a serial number of 120.
My friend David has a 614, F4 style Eastman with a serial number of 64.
I'm pretty sure they'd made more than 64 or 120 mandolins when we got these.  Do they start over each year?  They do mark the year of manufacture on the label.

Jim this discussion may interest you.

The Diatonic Fret Board

Hope you get a chance to try one and share your thoughts on it in the Seagull group as well as here. One thing i do know about it is that the nut is wider than that of the Gretsch NewYorker Supreme.

I may get a chance to try one on Friday. Ive been made an interesting price for an S8 Natural.

Similar to a reverse dulcimer capoed at the third fret with fewer frets. 

I've never seen a Seagull mandolin before.
