Collings MF5-O Deluxe Varnish Quilted Maple & Italian Spruce Sunburst



Spectacular sounding MF5-O just in from Collings Guitars! This is by far the nicest MF5-O we've ever had in stock, upgraded with an Italian Spruce top, premium quilted Maple back and sides and Varnish finish. This instrument does what you'd expect an oval-hole mandolin to do -- it's warm, chimey and responsive, with a great openness to its voice. But it's so loud and powerful that it nearly bridges the gap between f-hole mandolin an guitar. A lifetime instrument!  Priced with TKL hard case.
