If you've been waiting to step up to a professional mandolin, and don't mind a little wear & tear, this 2006 Collings MT would suit you nicely. It's been played lovingly these last 15 years, and has opened up to reveal a warm, woody voice. Overall condition is excellent, with only the expected signs of handling: no significant blemishes or structural issues to report. Beautiful reddish-mahogany 'burst gives it a bit of old Gibson charm! Priced with its original hard case.
