(Just Arrived!) Another day…another unbelievably gorgeous Collings mandolin. Here we have another Collings MF5-O mandolin – a high end sunburst oval hole instrument with ivoroid bindings, some MAGNIFICENT (special order) one-piece QUILTED maple and the ever-elegant satin Siver Waverly tuners with MOP (mother of pearl) knobs. The Collings oval hole instruments are X-braced and all have the wider (1 and 3/16″) nut width. This mandolin has the all the sound one would expect from a high end Collings, and the exceptional wood one expects to see AMW select when they conspire with Collings to build another world glass instrument. If you’ve got the oval hole itch, this thing is sure to scratch it…If you’ve got the scratch, we respectfully submit that we have your mandolin. Prepare to be embraced by this X brace. .
