Just wanted to get some feedback from fellow Collings owners out there. I play a 2004 Collings MF and am absolutely in love with the thing....the tone, the highs, mids, lows....it's what I want a mandolin to sound like.
My MF is a satin finish, and of course the MF is the low rung on the ladder for their F models.
Can any of you Collings players tell a difference in say a MF and a MF5 or MF5v in terms of tone and sound, or do they just have better bells and whistles and nicer appointments?
I know that a varnish finish and a satin finish top sound a bit different, but otherwise, let me hear it!
