Collings MT Mandolin Engelmann Spruce and Maple A Style with Custom Black Gloss Top ID-8762
Collings MT Mandolin Engelmann Spruce and Maple A Style with Custom Black Gloss Top
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 custom appointments. The custom Black Gloss top is a wonderful fully carved Engelmann spruce with figured maple back and sides as well as 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.
The MT is our entry-level satin finish A-model with simplified appointments. But don't let the "entry-level" part fool you- its built with the same quality construction as our higher end models. With a fully carved Englemann spruce top and maple back and sides, the MT is undoubtedly one of the best values out there in a professional quality A-style mandolin.
To complete the package, this custom MT also features custom ivoroid bindings and Nickel tuners with ivoroid buttons.
Hardshell case is included
