We present to you a Collings MF Mandolin with Ivoroid Bindings. Beautifully hand-crafted in Austin, TX, Collings mandolins are built with finest seasoned spruce and eastern maple. With equal emphasis placed on tone, fit and finish, and playability, they strive to create a new benchmark of quality in mandolins. They are build the best mandolins on the market.
The MF model is priced to help you get into a Collings F style mandolin. This world class mandolin features a satin body and Custom Ivoroid Bindings that accent the beautiful sunburst on the fully carved Adirondack spruce top. The satin finish also makes the flamed maple back and sides seem understated.
Playability on Collings' mandolins are hard to beat thanks to the exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing. This gives Collings mandolins a silky fret feel and this one plays like a dream with low action and surprising responsiveness. A compound 5 ½ - 11 5/8” Fingerboard Radius, V shaped Neck Profile and 1 9/16” inch string spacing means that this mandolin is versatile for all playing styles.
The mandolin section of the Collings Factory is really one of our favorite sections. If you ever get a chance to tour them (they do tours on Fridays) it will prove to you too that they are really passionate about what they do. Collings really wants you to passionately enjoy playing your mandolin. Please call us to find out how to take this one home.
