Collings MT O Oval Hole Mandolin Sunburst Gloss Top with Flamed Maple Back and Sides
This elegant Collings MTO, oval hole a-style mandolin, has been crafted to perfection. With an Engelmann Spruce top over a Flamed Maple back and sides, this mandolin is able to produce a beautifully rich, full tone that is responsive across the spectrum. The MT is undoubtedly one of the best values out there in a professional quality A-style mandolin.
By using a carved flamed maple back and sides, the luthiers at Collings have been able to produce a mandolin with great projection. It's the higher wood density of the flamed maple that creates the louder voice. With decades of experience building carved top instruments, Collings has prefected the process of choosing woods and tunning tops, allowing them to consitantly build incredible instruments.
With a sunburst finish, Ivoroid binding, and Gloss Top, this mandolin looks as beautiful as it sounds. The simplicity of the oval hole a-style mandolin design paired with the high gloss sunburst creates a visually stunning instrument. This is a mandolin that you will fall in love with.
This Instrument is in Excellent + Condition with only some light surface scratches near the pickguard location.
Includes Hardshell Case.
