SOLD – (NEW) Collings MT2 Custom Engelmann Spruce over Flame Sugar Maple, Tortoise Bindings, Collings Case – SOLD


We sell about forty Collings mandolins each year and we like to think we get a bit smarter with each instrument.  We pick our own wood, and we pat our own backs, and we’ve got a sharp eye for the good stuff…

Here is a custom MT2 in dark sunburst with woods personally selected by us – with a figured back of flamed Sugar maple and a warm tight-grained Engelmann spruce top.

The Engelmann spruce top, is ideal for someone who wants a loud mandolin that responds to a lighter touch. More easily driven than Adirondack spruce, Engelmann is highly prized for its warmth and full throaty sound. Immediate gratification, she offers, and a flair for the exotic.

We feel the MT-2 instrument represents the best buy in Collings’ mandolin line, and this one is just unique enough that someone who perhaps already owns a fine F model with an Adirondack top might be able to justify having this as his or her “second” Collings.

What else?  TORTOISE bindings, gold Elite tuners with black knobs, cast Collings tailpiece, and the standard 1 and 1/8″ nut width. It is a lovely thing indeed.
