Twenty+ years ago, Collings' original take on the F-5 set a new, lofty bar for modern mandolins. It remains an iconic touchstone today.
Why We Love This
The consummate professional mandolin, the Collings MF5 become synonymous with no-compromises build quality, brilliant tone, and strong projection that works beautifully in an acoustic mix. Single notes ring out with clarity and power, and chords have very solid chop with good note-to-note separation. This mandolin comes to us in very good condition, and would make for an inspiring instrument for the performing artist or dedicated player.
Please note: used instruments are, well, used. We pride ourselves on thoroughly vetting, and carefully photographing, each pre-owned instrument we sell, but many of them carry subtle signs of handling that can escape even the most discerning eye. If you have questions about the condition of this instrument, we invite you to call us for an in-hand description. We're here to help!
