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.

Sold! Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Sunburst, 2006

Sold! Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Sunburst, 2006

Drawing from 1957 specifications, the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster is built from a light-weight two-piece Alder body, and a one-piece Maple neck. (This model is also available with a Rosewood fingerboard). Since Johnson removes the backplate, it’s not installed on the signature model and mounting holes are not drilled.   The tuners are a staggered set – the posts for the high E, B and G strings are shortened to increase downbearing at the nut without requiring a string tree, which can add friction.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop G E Smith Telecaster Blonde, 2012

❌SOLD❌  Fender Custom Shop G E Smith Telecaster Blonde, 2012

The Fender Custom Shop G E Smith Telecaster is a very straight ahead instrument, using the classic early 1950’s fatter maple neck on swamp ash body, with flat-head screws, instead of Philips screws. The pickups are American Vintage models, while the bridge plate is cut back to expose the pickup cavity; the pickup itself is bolted to the body. Smith feels that this contributes to an increased ‘fatness’ in the bridge pickup tone. The inlays draw from Fender lap steels, which Smith also plays.
