Collings MT2-V Quilted Maple & Italian Spruce



Gorgeous MT2-V just into the shop. Collings varnish mandolins are fewer and further between, and the tonal properties gained definitely make them worth seeking out. The softer woods lend themselves to a sweeter, more complex sound with emphasis on the mid range. This would be the perfect option for music that requires a lighter touch, such as classical or jazz. The striking two piece quilted maple back is complimented by a flamed maple neck and straight grained Italian spruce top. Priced with a TKL case.
