New Collings MF DeLuxe Custom Mandolin 'In Stock'
New. Custom version of the Collings MF mandolin. Serial number F1873.
These DeLuxe MF mandolins are a great compromise between the MF model that sells for about $4400 and the MF-5 model that sells for around $7400. Ivoroid bindings not only around the top edge of the mandolin, but also around fingerboard and peghead. Glossy top finish. Handsome pickguard.
Sunburst matte finish except the top (see above) has glossy nitro-cellulose finish. Highly figured Maple back, sides and neck, with Adirondack Red Spruce top. Ivoroid bindings everywhere except around back edge of body. Ebony peghead overlay and Ebony truss-rod cover. Ebony traditional "Loar-style" bridge. Ebony abbreviated pickguard with ivoroid binding. Ebony endpin.
Collings pearl logo inlaid in peghead, small graduated pearl dots inlaid in radiused fingerboard. Nickel hardware, including tuners with ivoroid buttons to match the bindings, 1-piece tailpiece, and bridge adjusters.
The feel is nice, as well, with the cool "Vee" neck profile.
The effect of this mandolin on stage is that it appears as if it were a much more expensive mandolin to the listening audience. As you've come to expect from Collings this mandolin has very nice tone with a big voice.
New. Custom-ordered MF5 with special woods and Oval soundhole.
We ordered this mandolin for a customer and just have to show it off. It is already sold but shows as a wonderful example of how Collings goes above and beyond for custom orders. What a beautiful work of functional art. Check out these great features in the photographs: seasoned carved Englemann Spruce top, beautiful quilted maple sides and one-piece back with lovely figure. Multiple tortoise bindings really add great contrast with the honey blonde color. Made-in-Montana Waverly gold tuners with ebony buttons. Gold tailpiece. Ebony adjustable bridge. Ebony radiused fingerboard with dot position marker inlay. Beautiful floral inlay in peghead. Abbreviated Ebony pickguard installed by Collings.

This is a loud but very sweet mandolin. For being so brand new, it is quite responsive and sure to get better as it opens up from playing. One of the best things about Collings mandolins are how easy to play they are. This is an instrument that will not fight you, but will go wherever you need to go as a player. You would be hard pressed to find a better brand new mandolin at this price.
