If you're looking for a great buy on a beautifully customized Collings MT2, look no further. This MT2 features stunningly attractive tonewoods; and the top & body of the instrument have been torrefied to maximize sweetness of tone in a new instrument. Yes, this mandolin is technically "used," though it's difficult to spot any evidence of that. While you may be able to uncover a stray pick mark with the help of a magnifying glass, we feel confident describing the overall condition of this MT2 as near mint. A lovely sounding mandolin at a great price! Includes its original TKL hard case.
