While the ace team at Collings prides themselves on crafting consistent mandolins, they are also unafraid to be different. This stylish Tangerine-burst MF5-V wears its art-deco inspiration on its sleeve and has a voice as loud as its fashion statement. The Italian spruce top adds some warmth and midrange pop, prefect for jazz heads or plump chord melodies, and the addition of a varnish finish means the overtones stick around long after the pick leaves the strings. The condition is as new with zero fret wear, and that signature Collings set-up offers the smoothest ride imaginable. If all that wasn’t enough, this mandolin rests Collings handmade vintage-style case. If you are on the hunt for a sweet, complex sounding instrument that breaks tradition in style, this MF5-V will deliver in spades.
