Pre Owned 2013 Collings MT2 V A Style Mandolin with Tangerine Burst ID-7788
Pre Owned 2013 Collings MT2 V A Style Mandolin with Tangerine Burst
The MT2V is Collings' fully appointed A-model, built with an Adirondack Red Spruce top and Custom Birdseye Maple back and sides and finished with a hand-rubbed 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. A custom 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 nickel tuners with black buttons, Tortoise body, peghead and pickguard binding with b/w purfling, and a gorgeous Tangerine Burst, 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. The pickguard will also do an exceptional job at protecting the beautiful varnish finish.
This Pre Owned 2013 Collings MT2 V A Style Mandolin with Tangerine Burst is in excellent + condition with a few very minor pickguard scratches. It has minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
