Collings MT2 Mandolin Adirondack and Figured Maple with Sunburst Finish and Ivoroid Binding ID-10979
Collings MT2 Mandolin Adirondack and Figured Maple with Sunburst 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. The Collings MT Mandolin is a standard A-model with simplified appointments. The top is a wonderful fully carved Adirondack spruce with a Sunburst Finish. The back and sides are gorgeous figured maple.
Adirondack Spruce 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 MT features Ivoroid body bindings, black/white purflings, Mother of pearl dot fingerboard inlays, and Nickel tuners with Ivoroid buttons which make for a very classy look, complimenting the Sunburst finish perfectly. These additional features really make the MT stand out, with a very classy and traditional appearance.
