Collings MF5V Flamed Varnish w/ Wide Nut (2006)

Photo for Ad 127957

Just in! This early Collings MF5V Varnish has aged beautifully, sporting a smokey tobacco sunburst finish. It's been played, but not abused, and shows no major cosmetic blemishes at all. This is a very loud, open and crisp-sounding mandolin, and will please any bluegrass mandolinist looking for the power and cut necessary to penetrate a mix. Wider, 1 3/16" nut width. Priced with its original TKL case from Collings.

On consignment.
