Collings MF5 Fern w/ Waverly Tuners, Pickguard, & Collings Case



This stunning MF5 "Fern" features an ebony pickguard & vintage-style hard case made in Austin. The flawless craftsmanship and detail work is mirrored in the gorgeous flamed maple back and sides and picture-perfect Red Spruce top. Don't let its looks fool you though ~ this mandolin has plenty of growl to go with its incredible volume and articulation. A killer bluegrass mandolin, but it sounds great no matter what your taste.
