Collings MF5 F-Style Mandolin Sunburst 2012

Collings MF5 F-Style Mandolin Sunburst 2012

Here we’re looking at a Collings MF5 built during 2012 at the Collings shop in Austin, Texas. It features a hand-carved and voiced Red or Adirondack Spruce top paired with a spectacular hand carved, bookmatched Flame Maple back and matching sides. The neck is also Maple, with a bound Ebony fingerboard, Ebony headplate and bridge. The Mother of Pearl inlays are restrained- a small ‘Flourish’ decoration on the head plate, and dot markers on the fingerboard. The body is bound top and back, as is the fingerboard and top surface of the head stock.

Price: $7500 CAD

We’ve just received another Collings MF5 mandolin, and as usual it’s beyond impressive. Built using the best materials Collings can lay their hands on, this is a top-shelf instrument.

The MF5 is a traditional F-style mandolin featuring understated elegance – until you start to play it. Then it steps right out to the front!
