Description

Very rare Collings MT2 mandolin in Birdseye Maple / Italian Spruce and the sought-after Honey Amber finish! The stunning looks and craftsmanship are perfectly complimented by its round, bell-like tone -- and these Italian-topped mandolins seem to offer the clarity and definition of an instrument with an Adirondack top without any of the new-instrument harshness. Priced with new vintage-style hard case from Collings!
