Instrument Categories: ,

It’s harder for Left Handed folks to find top quality instruments, but this Collings MT2L, Varnish Finish, A-Style mandolin dating to 2012 fits the bill perfectly!

Built with the same incredible attention to detail, this Left-Handed Collings MT2L A-Style mandolin features a Red Spruce – also called ‘Adirondack’ Spruce – top, paired with a book matched and spectacularly figured carved Maple back, with the same Flamed Maple for the sides and neck. The bound fingerboard, head plate and pickguard are also ebony; the pickguard is original to the Varnish finish model. The finish used is a gloss Varnish in a traditional sunburst. Wear is very light, and overall this mandolin is in great condition.

This Collings MT2L is sold with its original hard shell case.

Here’s the builder on the Collings MT2L and the MT2 in general:

“The MT2 is our fully appointed A-model with a seasoned Red spruce top and premium maple back and sides. With its superb tone, elegant stylings and unmatched playability, the MT2 is sure to please the most discerning eyes and ears.”
