Description

Collings Guitars is widely recognized for the impeccable playability, tone, and fit-and-finish of all their instrument lines, and their mandolins are some of the finest on the market. This MT2-V A-style model in Adirondack Spruce and Eastern Flamed Maple clearly illustrates Bill Collings' pursuit of perfection, from the outstanding tone, courtesy of the seasoned Red Spruce top with parallel tone bar bracing, all the way down to the finest details, such as the hand-rubbed sunburst and oil-based varnish finish, as well as the supremely comfortable V-shaped neck profile. Tonally, this mandolin packs a wallop, with a clearly articulated chop and a warm, woody voice that projects effortlessly.

Bill Collings' mandolins embody all the finest qualities of his commitment to excellence, and this gem is a perfect example. I really appreciate the understated elegance of A-style mandos, and the oil-based varnish finish on the MT2 V gives a unique depth to the sunburst that allows the natural beauty of the gorgeous Flamed Maple and Adirondack Spruce top to shine through. And of course, Adirondack is the ultimate tonewood for those folks wanting to cut through the mix in a busy bluegrass session. I think I'll go find some banjo pickers to harass...
