Loving the Collings

    I've had the Collings for months now, and I am very much in love with this mandolin. It is light and very responsive. The neck is easy for my hand. I hope some day to be able to make the kind of beautiful music this axe is capable of.

    The two I was using when I got it (and I still have them) are the Washburn M106SW A style and the Eastman MD315 F style. Neither of those mandolins is nearly as responsive as the Collings, and they are both heavier. The ribs and plates are a bit overbuilt on both of them, and the neck is too cludgy on the Eastman; I actually prefer the Washburn as a beater.

    Same here - I've had my MTO now for a year and it just gets better and better!
