Collings MT2-V Birdseye Maple & Italian w/ Speed Neck

Photo for Ad 139048

With Collings case!

Killer sounding MT2-V fresh out of finish and into the shop. Collings varnish variants take much longer than their Nitrocellulose counterparts, but the result is definitely worth the wait. The combination of Italian spruce and Birdseye maple make this one sing in the upper register without being harsh. With a strong chop and tons of reverb, this one has enough power to keep up with band while still maintaining it's sensitive side. The speed neck is smooth and adds some added comfort while moving up the neck, which is useful because this one begs to be played up high. This is probably one of the last mandolins paired with the Collings made vintage style case.
