Collings MT A Style Mandolin Satin Sunburst, 2019

Collings MT A Style Mandolin Satin Sunburst, 2019

The Collings MT A Style mandolin is the entry point for Collings mandolins, and its lack of decoration doesn’t hide the quality of the instrument or the care with which it was built. The A Style mandolin appeared in the closing days of the 19th century as part of Orville Gibson’s revolutionary introduction of violin making principles to mandolin construction.   The results were such a dramatic improvement that the centuries old European bowl-back design almost died out in short order.

Martin 00 16E Granadillo Steel String Guitar

Martin 00 16E Granadillo Steel String Guitar

The new Martin 00 16E model starts from the classic 00, or Grand Concert body size, but in place of Mahogany or Indian Rosewood for the back and sides uses Granadillo. Granadillo is also known as Mexican Rosewood or Platymiscium Yucatanum. In Central and South America, it’s often used under the name Macacauba for musical instruments. Its density and hardness help it deliver a bit more top end than true Rosewoods, but still has bottom end and warmth.

❌SOLD❌ Collings MF Mandolin Satin Burst, 2019

❌SOLD❌  Collings MF Mandolin Satin Burst, 2019

Based on the classic F style carved top and back mandolins from the early years of the Twentieth Century, the Collings MF mandolin is a visually simplified but extremely high quality instrument. Building in Austin, Texas, Collings produces very well built guitars and mandolins, and their nitrocellulose lacquer finish quality is second to none. The Collings MF pairs a carved Adirondack Spruce top with Eastern Flame Maple for the neck, sides, and carved back.

❌SOLD❌ Collings MTO GT A Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2011

❌SOLD❌ Collings MTO GT A Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2011

Here is a very nice Collings MTO GT A Style mandolin from 2011. The GT simply means ‘Gloss Top’, with the rest of the instrument in a non-gloss satin finish. The Collings MTO is based on the classic Orville Gibson A Style ‘teardrop’ design dating back to the end of the 19th century. The A and F styles were radical departures from traditional mandolins and merged violin family construction concepts with the mandolin.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Classic Honey Burst 2008

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Classic Honey Burst 2008

Here’s a lovely Gibson Les Paul Classic in a Honey Burst finish, built during 2008 and with a ‘1960’ stamped creme pickguard. Built to refer to the 1960 version of the Les Paul Standard, the Les Paul Classic features a slim taper neck and nine-hole weight relief, bringing the guitar to a surprisingly comfortable weight. Aside from the weight relief, the Les Paul Classic follows the usual pattern of a lightly figured Maple cap on a Mahogany back, set Mahogany neck and bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard.
