2009 Collings MF5 Mandolin F-Style Adirondack Spruce and Maple

Hand-crafted in Austin, TX, Collings mandolins are built with finest seasoned spruce and eastern maple. With equal emphasis placed on tone, fit and finish, and playability, they strive to create a new benchmark of quality in mandolins. This 2009 Collings MF5 is a fully appointed F-model with a carved seasoned Red spruce top and premium maple back and sides. This particular mandolin has a beautiful amber sunburst top with grained ivoroid bindings on the neck and body, with a beautiful black/white side purfling.

The tone of this instrument is exactly what we've come to expect out of Collings... it is rich, thick and meaty with lots of punch and a great chop.  Playability on Collings' mandolins are hard to beat, and this one plays like a dream with low action and surprising responsiveness.

There are some very light finish scratches on the headstock area, with a scratch near the left tuners from string changes.  The tailpiece shows some wear, as pictured.  Original Collings hardshell case included.
