The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

SOLD!!! Collings MT2 A Style Gloss Mandolin, Vintage Burst


Instrument Categories: ,

The Collings MT2 A Style is one of the finest production mandolins available, using top shelf materials and very high level build quality.

Built using traditional mixtures of a Red (Adirondack) Spruce top, Eastern Flame Maple back, sides and neck, with Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge, the Collings MT2 A Style is wrapped in an impeccable nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Collings does some of the best finishing around. The body of this example is bound with faux-tortoise plastic – Ivoroid is used on some versions – with black/white side and top purfling.

The real test is in how an instrument plays and sounds, and the Collings MT2 A Style mandolin does not disappoint on any front. Even fresh from being shipped to us, this instrument has a good factory setup, and sweet tone with plenty of volume. The Red or Adirondack Spruce used for the top helps keep the tone clean when played hard, as might happen from time to time in a bluegrass or country context. This is a really great instrument.

The Collings MT2 mandolin is sold with its original hard shell, Collings branded case by TKL.

Please note:  This instrument is priced in US Dollars.
