2005 Collings MF5 Mandolin

Photo for Ad 158313

(Serial No. 527) Near mint condition, blonde lacquer finish, built in Austin,Texas. Collings mandolins are built to the same high quality standards as their guitars. Most builders do not like to make blonde mandolins - without a sunburst, you cannot hide binding errors. They have to be perfect. Well, I don't know if this mandolin is perfect, but at least the binding is error free. Plays nice with good low action and sounds pretty good, too. This mandolin has a big, rich voice with great projection and a powerful chop - everything you'd expect from a Collings. Nice clean mandolin with an Adirondack spruce top and heavily flamed maple back and sides. Has a 1 1/8 inch nut and jumbo frets on the radiused ebony fretboard, which is shortened by Collings to eliminate pick click. Has a soft V profile neck. Fitted with the Collings one piece tailpiece. No repairs or other issues noted. Comes with the original hardshell case....USD $6450
