About This Listing

(NEW) We sell more than thirty Collings mandolins each year (48 in 2013!!) and we like to think we get a bit smarter with each instrument. This custom dark sunburst MF5 features a highly flamed and figured Sugar maple back and ITALIAN spruce top, with gold abalone FERN INLAY (!) standard (1 and 1/8″) nut, IVOROID bindings, GOLD Waverly tuners with pearl knobs, and “Collings” engraved gold James tailpiece.

We personally selected the woods for this mandolin when we visited Collings in May of 2014.

What’d we get? An off-the-charts fine, fine mandolin with subtle cosmetic touches that invite close inspection, tone that makes one play slowly and smile, and playability that makes one stay up late.

Another well considered and eagerly awaited custom mandolin that makes us very proud, and just slightly humbled by the consistency and relentless pursuit of excellence on display in each Collings instrument.
