MF5 F Style Mandolin Adirondack Spruce & Maple

The Collings MF is a fully appointed F-model. It has a carved, seasoned Adirondack Spruce top and premium one piece maple back. This 2012 model has an incredible sound. This sound falls somewhere in between the vintage sounds of Bill Monroe and modern players such as Chris Thile.  The tone is thick and rich, with clear resonant highs that never sound thin.   The fretboard plays extremely fast, making those bluegrass classics a breeze at any tempo. However, the tone of this instrument is versatile enough to fit well into any genre. Whether is be anything from Irish to Classical, this Collings can do it all.

This MF5 features an Adirondack Spruce top. The sunburst color is a bit more traditional than most Collings' mandolins. It has a bit more orange in the center of the burst. It allows just enough of the premium grained Adirondack to show through the finish.  The one piece maple back keeps the sound punchy and clear. When combined with the Adirondack, plenty of volume and power is readily available to just dig in!

This Pre-Owned Mandolin is in Excellent Condition w/ no wear or tear to mention.
