Collings Mandolin MT2 Carpathian Spruce New

Photo for Ad 147763

The MT2 is the deluxe version of the Collings A-style mandolin. It has a full body gloss finish, highly figured maple back, sides and neck, ivoroid binding on the top, back neck and headstock. And this particular mandolin is among the first to feature a beautiful Carpathian spruce top, which is available on a limited basis. Sourced from the Carpathian mountains of central/eastern Europe, this tonewood is often compared to Red Spruce for its exceptional stiffness, yet it is also incredibly lightweight and responsive. With rich and complex overtones and a strong midrange presence, this mandolin rings like a bell and has a resonance that can be felt throughout the instrument.

Acoustic guitars, mandolins, and banjos are still the mainstays at Gryphon, as they have been for over 45 years, though our inventory of steel guitars and ukuleles continues to grow as well. In recent years an important part of our growth has been in instruments by very small companies and individual makers, as we continue to keep one foot, or at least several toes, outside the mainstream music industry.
