Collings MF Mandolin with Ivoroid Binding Pre-Owned 2008
The MF is a world class mandolin with simplified appointments featuring a gloss top as well as a satin finish on the back and sides and, on this particular instrument, custom ivoroid binding . With a fully carved Adirondack spruce top and maple back and sides, the MF is built with the same quality construction as Collings fully-appointed models.
The Adirondack Top is rich, thick and meaty with lots of punch and a great chop. The worn in finish on the back and sides not only looks incredible and vintage but produces a tone that is wide open, and woody that really compliments the tone that the gloss top produces. Playability on Collings' mandolins are hard to beat, and this one plays like a dream with low action and surprising responsiveness.
The custom Ivoroid binding on the body makes for a very classy look, complimenting the played and worn in sunburst top perfectly. The Adirondack Spruce top is especially nice on this instrument, with large grain and a wide open sound.
This Collings MF Mandolin with Ivoroid Binding Pre-Owned 2008 has been well loved and played as the photos represent. This mandolin has some pick wear, light finish checking and the finish on the back of the neck has been removed. There was also a pickup installed in this Collings MF but has been removed. The input jack is still in the end pins place. This does not have any effect on the mandolins tone or playability.
This is a true players mandolin and it sounds, looks, and feels that way! This Collings MF very bit of the worn in vintage mandolin you could want...with a better tone!! Don't miss the chance to add it to your collection.
This Mandolin offers a unique smokey aroma, for all you cigar afficianados. Comes with a few select Hondurans... Enjoy with your favorite bourbon!
Includes Original Hardshell Case.
