Collings MF5V Varnish Sunburst Torch & Wire

Photo for Ad 118253

Been looking for that special Collings MF5 Varnish? Take note herein. This stunner features the jaw-dropping "Torch & Wire" headstock inlay and has the characteristic Collings voice -- wide open, woody and bright all at once -- that makes it the ideal instrument for the player who wants one instrument that'll do it all. Amazing balance across the fretboard, with the sonorous, singing high end that reminds us of the best mandolins ever made. Impeccable in all regards. Paired with new Collings-built vintage style hard case!
