2004 Collings MT2 Mandolin A-style Birdseye Maple and Adirondack with Blonde Finish
We are fortunate to feature this 2004 Collings MT2 Mandolin. It has been made with the rarer Birdseye maple rather than the standard flamed or quilted. Collings mandolins are built with finest seasoned spruce and choice maple. They place equal emphasis placed on tone, "fit and finish" and playability. Collings strives to create a new benchmark of quality in mandolins.
The MT2 is Collings' fully appointed A-model. It comes with a seasoned Adirondack Red Spruce top. It also comes with the premium Birds Eye Maple back and sides. Don't let the A-style body convince you it isn't up to bluegrass. This mandolin, in particular, displays a surprising amount volume & "pop" for an A-Style Mandolin. The Adirondack Spruce top adds an ample amount clarity and attack. Meanwhile the Birdseye Maple back & sides deliver bright defined notes.
When "chopping" chords for rhythm, this mandolin has that desirable "crack". This is the sound that drives every Bluegrass jam and could cut through any mix. The amount of power that this A-Style displays is comparable to that of an F style mandolin, however, it is priced considerably less. Since this instrument has had time to "open up", the tone it produces is that similar to a vintage instrument.
This MT2 Mandolin is in great condition. It has just a few minor scratches to the headstock and some finish scratches to the body. Original Hardshell Case Included. Check out the specs on this mandolin. It could be just what you've been looking for.
