(NEW) Never a bad day to receive one of these! Bill Collings brought mandolin production to a higher level when he threw his hat in the ring, just like he did with acoustic and electric guitars. His instruments have impeccably balanced tone, and a pianistic quality up and down the neck.
The MT-O is known for having a little warmer, rounder tone than the f-hole equipped MT. This is due to its X-bracing model, and of course the sound coming from the sound hole. MT-O instruments are "wide nut" standard, at 1 3/16", and this makes them popular with guitarists who are moonlighting on mandolin. This one has a gloss black Engelmann top, and satin finish on the neck and flame maple back. It's perfect in every way, and includes a TKL hard case.
AMW Price: $3,800 (Online checkout, Collings 2021 MAP price)
