Collings MT2O A-Style Mandolin with Oval Hole & Cream Top - PreOwned 2018

This instrument has micro-towel marks from being wiped down in our shop during demonstration and may have fret wear, both so fine they cannot be shown in photographs. It is being sold as a used instrument with no factory warranty. There are no other defects or blemishes to report, and it conforms to factory setup and fully functions as designed.

As Collings' fully appointed oval hole A-model, the Collings MT2 O includes a high-gloss lacquer finish and full ivoroid bindings. Built with select Adirondack Red spruce and maple, this mandolin produces a rich and vibrant tone that is well-suited for celtic, old-time, classical and jazz styles... without missing a beat in a bluegrass setting.

A-Style mandolins generally produce a tone that is a bit rounder and deeper than an f-style mando. The oval sound hole takes this a step further, by allowing even more mids and lows to fully expand without the compression exhibited by the f-hole models.

This mandolin features an exquisite Adirondack spruce top. This topwood keeps the high end bright and clear while the oval sound hole balances the tone to perfection.

The beautiful Cream Top on this mandolin is accented not only by the oval sound hole, but ivoroid binding with black purfling and a White pickguard to protect the instrument from heavy playing while also providing some tone balancing benefits, similar to activating a high-pass filter on a microphone... it takes some of the boominess out of the recording process.
