Description

Brand-new Collings MT2 mandolin, with an Italian Spruce top in place of the standard Adirondack. The demand for these instruments over the past year has been enormous ~ and with the warmth and sweetness Italian Spruce seems to bring out of an MT2 it's easier to understand why. The response is looser and quicker than Adirondack, giving players who yearn for the feel and sound of a well-played instrument immediate gratification (and the perfect Collings worksmanship to boot). An extremely versatile mandolin, unrivaled in its price point. Priced with Collings' own hard case!
