We are big fans of Collings mandolins. Built in Austin, Texas these instruments have a remarkable sound and beautiful finishes. The MT is the most affordable of Collings mandolins but don’t let that fool you into thinking this is anything less than a fabulous instrument. This is an A-shaped mandolin with F-style sound holes, this beauty features an Englemann Spruce top, Flamed Maple back, neck and sides, Ebony fingerboard and bridge, Nickel Gotoh tuners and a rich, Merlot-colored satin finish. For someone looking for a higher-end instrument, the Collings MT is great value. (We usually have more than one model of the MT in stock so check out the offerings here on our website.)
