Collings MT2 Mandolin Black Top with Sunburst Back and Sides and Wide Nut ID-8830


Collings MT2 Mandolin Black Top with Sunburst Back and Sides and Wide Nut

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 definitely 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 Black Gloss Finish complimented by flamed maple back and sides with a satin finish. Adirondack Spruce is highly responsive without requiring a heavy pick attack. This particular tonewood is well 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 wide nut width, Ivoroid body bindings, and Nickel tuners with Ivoroid buttons which 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.
