Please note!  This mandolin is no longer available and out of stock.   Please contact us for other fine mandolins.   

 

We get a steady stream of players looking for pro quality mandolins with slightly wider necks. Bill Collings already uses a nice comfortable 1 1/8″ wide bone nut as his standard. This Collings Custom MT Mandolin goes one step further and features not only upgraded grained ivoroid top binding, but a custom 1 3/16″ wide bone nut!

Regardless of nut width and aesthetic upgrades, the MT model mandolin from Bill Collings is without a doubt the best mandolin in it’s price point … period! These instruments showcase the same meticulous fit & finish that Bill has built his reputation on and simply blow the doors off the competition from a tone and projection standpoint!!!
