Collings MF5, NAMM 2024, Adirondack Spruce, One-Piece Maple Back - NEW - ON HOLD

(NEW) Well well WELL!  This is a nice thing, a brand new Collings MF5 (our first available "in the wild" for quite some time) and they pulled out all the stops: beautiful one-piece maple back, exquisite Adirondack spruce with classic tobacco sunburst, and all of the traditional American mandolin DNA that proves that Collings is still doing it as well as anyone.  

If you're reading this listing, you probably already know that Collings brought the same exacting detail and uncompromising approach to building mandolins as he did with acoustic guitars a couple decades earlier.  These are some of the finest available, with a piano-like evenness of response up and down the fingerboard.  Collings clarity is legendary, but the sweetness and almost classical nature of the tone will disarm some.  Importantly, Collings mandolins are DYNAMIC and don't need to be played hard to sound their best.  They actually ALWAYS sound their best.  

1 1/8" nut width, compound radius ebony fingerboard with dot inlays, ivoroid binding on body, neck and peghead.  Compensated ebony bridge.  Peghead flourish standard for MF5.  You already know!  Includes original hard case. 

The VERY RARE chance to offer a brand new Collings mandolin, we feel as lucky as anything.  This instrument was build for the NAMM show, 2024.
