Description

Gorgeous Collings MF5 mandolin just into the shop! The premium flamed Maple back and sides have been paired with an Italian Spruce top, which gives this mandolin an airy sweetness reminiscent of a well played-in instrument. It's incomparably balanced from string-to-string, with more than enough power should it be called upon for rhythm duty in a bluegrass band. Whether fiddle tunes, funk or jazz, the tone, looks and vibe of this instrument are second to none. Priced with new vintage style hard case made by Collings!
