Collings Mandolins - MF5 - Sunburst

$8,190.00


This new Collings MF5 F-style mandolin is, simply put, absolutely gorgeous. This is the Austin, TX, builders' fully appointed F-model featuring a select Adirondack Spruce top and premium figured Maple neck, back and sides, and an Ebony fingerboard - all together making it easily one of the best-sounding and -playing mandolin we've had the pleasure to come across. This is an elegant player with superb tone and unparalleled playability - holding it for just a minute will have you seeing why.

This has the standard 13 7/8" scale length and 1 1/8" nut width, but there's nothing standard about its glorious appointments: high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer Sunburst finish; grained Ivoroid binding and black/white purfling; a Florentine-style headstock with elaborate Fern inlay; mother-of-pearl dot inlays; gold tailpiece and tuners with pearl buttons; and a Bone nut. A stunning eye- and ear-catching mando, the Collings MF5 also includes Collings' brand new hardshell case and a full setup to your specs.
