$10,850.00

Description

Just into the shop! This Collings MF5 mandolin features their new Cremona Sunburst finish and "Flowerpot" peghead inlay. We've added the "speed neck" treatment to this instrument, for a faster-playing, worn-in feel. Fiddle tune fans, take note: this is a loud, resonant mandolin that would cut a microphone like a machete. A fantastic-looking, great-sounding bluegrass axe! Priced with Collings-made vintage style hard case.
