Collings MTO Custom Oval Hole Mandolin Black Face with Honey Amber Back and Sides

Collings MTO is an oval hole a-style mandolin featuring an engelmann spruce top over flamed maple. These mandolins produce a rich and vibrant tone that is well-suited for celtic, old-time, classical and jazz styles.

This custom mandolin was ordered with a gloss back top and satin honey-amber sunburst back and sides. The bindings are all tortoise, with no purflings at all, selected intentionally to blend in with the black finish. Even the ebony pickguard is bound in tortoise without purfle lines... it is gorgeous!

The finishing touches on this mandolin is the hardware... gold tailpiece and tuning machines with ebony tuning buttons.

This mandolin has a very sweet, full tone and is highly responsive across the spectrum. Engelmann spruce is one of the softest varieties of spruce and therefore is very warm and responsive with even the lightest pick attack. The trebles are smooth and pure, balanced perfectly with the midrange.

This mandolin came in pre-sold as a custom order... contact us today about ordering a similar instrument.
