Collings MT2-V Varnish Quilted Maple / Italian Spruce Wide Nut


This stunning Collings MT2-V ("V" for varnish-finished) is easily the nicest A-style Collings we've had in the shop. We went all in on this one, when some stunning quilted maple became available for a build, adding an Italian Spruce top, Waverly tuners and a wide nut width for a little extra room on the fingerboard. As far as looks go? Well, it really couldn't be any hotter than it is. Sound? As you might imagine, this is a warm sounding Collings. Very resonant and open, with great harmonic richness across all registers. It's plenty articulate (it's a Collings after all), and would make a do-it-all instrument for anyone seeking the ultimate in versatility and depth of sound. Priced with Collins-made vintage style hard case. A great instrument.
