Collings MT A-Style Mandolin Engelmann Spruce and Maple ID-6075
Collings MT A-Style Mandolin Engelmann Spruce and Maple
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 achieve a new benchmark of quality in mandolins.
The Collings MT Mandolin is a standard A-model with simplified appointments. The top is a wonderful fully carved Engelmann spruce with a Black Gloss Finish complimented by flamed maple back and sides with a satin finish. Engelmann is highly responsive without requiring a heavy pick attack. 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 it handles heavy playing quite well too.
To complete the package, this custom MT also features custom Ivoroid bindings, bound Ebony pickguard, and Nickel tuners with black buttons. The Ivoroid bindings and bound Ebony pickguard make for a very classy look, complimenting the Black gloss finish perfectly. These additional features really make the MT stand out, with a very classy and traditional appearance.
