July 16, 2014 | Mandolin Cafe Classifieds Eastman DGM1 - Giacomel Replica
We had the opportunity to review one of these models when they first came out five years ago, the Eastman built Giacomel Replica DGM1, produced under the supervision of mandolin legend David Grisman. Visually, the space-age design is a trail-blazing departure from the Lloyd Loar Florentine tobacco-burst template, from its cutting edge Cubist outline to its resounding aural sweetness.
We spotted a pretty good deal on the Mandolin Cafe Classifieds on a used one. No financial interest but the seller is reputable and has a good eye for quality. Posted in the lower $2K, his price is quite reasonable.
