Gently used MT-O just in on consignment! The Collings oval hole variant is noticeably warmer and fatter sounding than the Typical F hole mandolins, and their Sheraton Brown finish invokes some old world instrument vibe into a more modern sounding projection perfect for loud old time jams, Celtic ensembles, or classical music. The softer Engelmann top adds a touch more warmth to the sound and a thin nitro finish allows for a bit more airy resonance than the glossy counterpart. The only signs of wear is a bit of finish shine where an anchored thumb sat. This is a great chance to get into a near perfect condition instrument at a used price.
