Collings Custom MT Blackface Mandolin

Brand:

Instrument Categories:

The Collings Custom MT Blackface sports the “Blacktop” finish with a rich history in the mandolin world, dating back to the very early 1900’s. Bill Collings occasionally builds one of his popular MT model mandolins with upgraded gloss black top finish and adds grained ivoroid top binding to set the whole thing off. What a great look!

The Collings Custom MT Blackface Mandolin model, with its modest pricing, carved & graduated Engelmann spruce top, solid flamed maple back & sides, proprietary cast tailpiece, radiused ebony fingerboard … and absolutely tone-drenched cutting power, is still the most popular professional level mandolin our store has ever carried!
