Here we have a stunning Collings MT Gloss Top mandolin in near mint condition. Built in 2019, this A-style mandolin features a premium carved Engelmann spruce top and seasoned figured maple back and sides. The handcrafted MT offers professional level tone and playability in a simple and understated appointment package.
An ultra thin all-nitrocellulose lacquer finish and individually graduated tonewoods provide ringing sustain, a wide dynamic range, and impressive responsiveness that can rival instruments at considerably higher price points.
