Collings MT Mandolin Engelmann Spruce and Figured Maple A Style with Tobacco Sunburst Top ID-8554
Collings MT Mandolin Engelmann Spruce and Figured Maple A Style with Tobacco Sunburst Top
The Collings MT Mandolin is a standard A-model with custom appointments. The Gloss Tobacco Sunburst top is a wonderful fully carved Engelmann spruce. Additionally, it features a figured Maple back and sides as well as a Satin Finish.
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.
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 Tortoise body bindings, and Nickel tuners with Ebony buttons. The tortoise bindings make for a very classy look, complimenting the satin finish perfectly. The Gloss top will compliment the already gorgeous Tobacco Sunburst finish. These additional features really make the MT stand out, with a very classic and traditional appearance.
