Collings MF 5 Mandolin F Style with Black Adirondack Top Maple Back PreOwned 2004
Collings hand-crafted mandolins are the best in the business. Beloved by players such as include James Nash (The Waybacks), Adam Steffey, James Key (Hamilton County Ramblers), Sarah Jarosz, Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons), and The Greencards!
If a Collings Mandolin has been on your bucket list but the price has scared you away – or if the perfection of a Collings Mandolin means that that you would hate to take it out on the festival circuit or clubs, then this mandolin may just be what you are looking for.
It comes to us already loved upon. It has a few dents and minor scratches (black tops don’t hide such very well) and the first 7 frets are new. It has a new Cumberland Acoustic Bridge upgrade(in the case & ready for installation) and a portion the neck has been sanded to the bare wood to make gliding down the neck as quick as can be.
Like any Collings MF 5 it is a fully appointed F-model with a carved, seasoned Adirondack Spruce top (with Black Top finish) and premium Flame Maple back and sides. The tone from this pre-loved mandolin is bold and open. It sounds just like you’d want your mandolin to. With clear resonant highs that never sound thin and plenty of bass notes.
Collings MF5 models also have their distinctive Mother of Pearl Flourish Inlay on the headstock. The LR Baggs Radius Pickup means you are ready to just plug in and play! This comes with a Guardian Hard Case and the original bridge is in the case.
