Collings MT2 V A Style Mandolin Adirondack Spruce and Flame Maple with Sunburst and Varnish ID-8186
Collings MT2 V A Style Mandolin Adirondack Spruce and Flame Maple with Sunburst and Varnish
This mandolin has a tone that is rich in low mids and very smooth in the treble range. The Varnish finish makes the Collings MT2 that much warmer, making the tone sound much deeper with lots of warmth and definition.
Hand-crafted in Austin, TX, Collings mandolins are built with finest materials. With equal emphasis placed on tone, fit and finish, and playability, they strive to create a new benchmark
of quality in mandolins.
The MT2V is Collings' fully appointed A-model, built with an Adirondack Red Spruce top and Flamed Maple back and sides and finished with a stunning varnish finish.
A custom wide nut width of 1 3/16" gives your left hand plenty of room to fret notes cleanly and accurately and is especially nice when transitioning from guitar to a mandolin.
This Collings MT2V also features custom engraved tuners with pearl buttons, grained ivoroid top/back/neck binding and a gorgeous varnish sunburst finish, which aside from being both functional and visual, actually balances the tone when recordings, similar to engaging a high-pass filter on the microphone. It reduces proximity effect, or the boominess that can arise when recording close miked.
This custom Collings MT2V includes a custom TKL case.
