Collings MF5 Cremona Sunburst w/ Flowerpot & Speed Neck & Collings Case

Financing with Affirm


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.
