Collings MT2-O Cream Top w/ Ivoroid Pickguard

Sold

There wasn't another mandolin at last winter's NAMM that received attention like the first-ever cream-colored Collings MT2-O! We're happy to have another one in stock. This model is a throwback to the old Gibson A3, featuring dark burgundy back and sides (it's the Merlot finish seen on other Collings mandolins, but not as red in color). Aside from its huge cool factor, this mandolin plays like a dream and has all the power and bell-like sustain you could ever ask for in an oval-hole instrument. Warm, clear and focused beyond belief! Priced with hard case.
