❌SOLD❌ Collings MF F-Style Mandolin Dark Satin Burst 2016


Instrument Categories: ,

The Collings MF is a visually simplified yet extremely high quality instrument, based on the classic F style carved top and back mandolins from the early years of the Twentieth Century.

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. The fingerboard, bridge and head plate are Ebony, and the inlaid Collings logo is Mother of Pearl. The fingerboard has a compound radius crown, from 5.5 inches at the nut to 11.625 inches at the body.

For hardware, a Collings tailpiece anchors the strings and the tuners are Gotoh nickel-plated models with black buttons. And that’s it!

Here we’re looking a Collings MF F-Style Mandolin in a dark Satin Sunburst finish built during 2016 at the Collings shop in Austin Texas. It is in very good, clean condition with one small pressure mark at the lower end of the bass F hole. Fretwear is negligible, and this instrument is well set up.

The original Collings case by TKL is included.

More From The Builder On The Collings MF mandolin:

“The Collings MF is our satin finish F-model with simplified appointments. With a fully carved Adirondack spruce top and maple back and sides, the MF is built with the same quality construction as our fully-appointed models.
These instruments produce the rich, woody tone that one would expect from a professional quality mandolin at an affordable price.”
