Collings MT O
As Bill Collings used to say, "it's not about the tools, it's the mentality of the people building the guitars that matters". This attentive thought goes into every instrument that comes out of the factory.
Collings mandolins are built at Bill Colling’s shop in Austin, Texas and exhibit the same extremely high quality found on all Collings instruments. It is because of this attention to detail that Collings is able to produce a mandolin with such great projection of tone and
The Collings MT Mandolin is a standard A-model with custom appointments. This particular MT has an Englemann Spruce Top with Flamed Maple Back and Sides. This is paired with a beautiful custom Merlot finish and is bound in Ivoroid. This mandolin looks as good as it sounds!
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 Engelmann Spruce top is coupled with a gorgeous set of Flamed Maple. This combination makes for a sweeter, brighter and higher-pitched Mandolin with a full spectrum of sound.
The Collings MT is undoubtedly one of the best instruments out there in a professional quality A-style mandolin. From the pop-country style of Taylor Swift to the speedy Bluegrass picking this mandolin can do it all.
This mandolin is a great piece to add to any players collection!
