Collings MT2

Collings MT2

As Bill Collings will tell you, "it's not about the tools, it's the mentality of the people building the guitars that matters". This attentive thought goes into every instrument that comes out of the factory.

Collings mandolins are built at Bill Colling’s shop in Austin, Texas and exhibit the same extremely high quality found on all Collings instruments. It is because of this attention to detail that Collings is able to produce a mandolin with such great projection of tone and playability.

The MT2 is a fully appointed A-model with an Adirondack spruce top and premium Eastern Flame maple back and sides. With its superb tone, elegant stylings and unmatched playability, the MT2 is sure to please the most discerning eyes and ears.

Adirondack Spruce is highly responsive with great volume. This tonewood is known for warm, lush, thick sounds with a smooth high end and punchy midrange. It doesn't need to be played hard to sound great, although that is its wheelhouse.

The Adirondack Spruce top is coupled with a gorgeous set of Eastern Flame Maple. This combonation makes for a sweeter, an even and lush sounding Mandolin with a full spectrum of sound.

F hole mandolins project better, with a clearer and more cutting sound while still delivering an even bass sound and resonance.

The Collings MT2 is undoubtedly one of the best instruments out there in a professional quality A-style mandolin. From the pop-country style of Taylor Swift to the Speedy Bluegrass picking this mandolin can do it all.
