2017 Collings MF Gloss Top Mandolin


This 2017 Collings has a beautiful tone and the previous owner took really good care of it. We are huge fan of Colling mandolins and this mandolin was built exceptionally well. It plays with ease and has a shimmering, balanced tone. There is a nick on the top but other than that, this mandolin is really clean. Check out the pictures provided and send us a message for more in-depth info about this mandolin!

Collings MF Gloss Top Mandolin

The MF is Collings' loss finish F-model with simplified appointments. With a fully carved Adirondack spruce top and maple back and sides, the MF is built with the same quality construction as our fully-appointed models. These instruments produce the rich, woody tone that one would expect from a professional quality mandolin at an affordable price.

HARDWARE

Each mandolin bridge and pickguard are handmade of solid ebony here in the Collings shop. Our tailpieces offer convenient top loading and are made of bronze to enhance string resonance. Gotoh tuners provide a smooth tuning feel and reliable operation.

APPOINTMENTS

The Collings MF features a single bound top and mother of pearl dot inlays. This basic aesthetic is designed to accentuate the simplified yet tasteful configuration of the MF model.

SOUND-HOLE

F-style sound-holes are precision cut after the finish has been applied to ensure a thin, even finish across the top and exceptionally clean and elegant lines. F-style sound-holes are paired with dual tone bar bracing for excellent projection and bright articulate tone.

MANDOLIN TOP VOICING

From the starting point of the wood's density and rigidity, each mandolin top is hand selected, evaluated, and carved to its own unique thickness; maximizing the tonal potential of each top. An Adirondack spruce top provides excellent clarity and focus with lots of projection and headroom.

PREMIUM TONEWOODS

Each of our mandolins, from our most affordable model to the highest end, are built with the finest tonewoods available. Each wood is acquired, acclimated, and hand selected by master luthiers who pick each component with the whole tonality of the end instrument in mind.

PLAYABILITY

A combination of exacting PLEK machine leveling and hand fret dressing ensure a comfortable setup and silky fret feel. A compound 5 1/2 -11 5/8 fingerboard radius, V shaped neck profile, and 1 9/16 inch string spacing creates an exceptional playability that is versatile for a wide range of styles.
