New Collings MT Custom Ivoroid bound w/ Sunburst and gloss top Mandolin 'Sold'

     New. Wonderful customized MT model from Collings. SN: A3517
     Great mandolin... Beautiful sunburst coloration really comes alive under the gloss finish, framed by the ivoroid top bindings. Thick band figured Maple back, sides and neck. Englemann Spruce top.
     The sound is great on this mandolin. We buy these regularly from Collings because they are so perfectly built and also very consistent with tones and tonal range. I can't say this one is "better" than most, but I can say it is everything you hope it would be.

New Collings MT Custom Mandolin 'Sold'

     New. SN: A3612. Customized width at nut: 1 3/16".
     Fully-carved Engelmann Spruce top. Flamed maple neck, back, and sides. Satin finish with deep brown-red sunburst. We ordered this particular mandolin customized with ivoroid top binding and the wider bone nut. Nickel tuners with ivoroid buttons. Ebony fingerboard with graduated dot position markers. Ebony peghead overlay with Collings logo inlaid in mother of pearl. One line of black binding on the back, visible on the side. Ebony bridge. Ebony truss rod cover.
     The Collings MT model is a great, solid, powerful instrument. We have customized it by adding tasteful ivoroid binding and matching tuner buttons. This particular instrument has super strong Gs and Ds, which nicely bolster its clean highs. Fun to pick a melody on, and super solid for chopping a steady rhythm. This is all the mandolin you'll ever need. Comes with a deluxe Collings hardshell case.

New Collings MT Custom Black Top 1 3/16" Nut Mandolin 'Sold'

Custom black top, with gloss lacquer, sunburst satin finish back sides & neck. Maple back and sides, spruce top. 1 3/16" wide nut. Multiple bound top with tortoise/black/white. The effect that the white layer of binding has on the tortoise is quite nice - it "backlights" the tortoise strip so that it comes alive with the reds and ambers that are more muted without the white line beneath. Ecxcellent playability and tone.

New Collings MT Custom Black Top Mandolin 'Sold'

Beautiful mandolin. Custom black top, with gloss lacquer, satin finish back sides & neck. Maple back and sides, spruce top. Tortoise top bindings w/ white purfling. The extra white line in the binding is definitely worth the cost - on a black top mandolin single tortoise binding fades into the background, while this multiple binding with white behind the tortoise really shows off the color and depth of the Tortoise! Nice looking mandolin. *Photos are of previous instrument. Listen to these sound samples...
