2006 Collings MT2V in excellent condition. Showing just a few very faint surface scratches here and there that will take close scrutiny to notice. Some tarnish on the tailpiece. Incredible condition for an instrument coming up on its 20th birthday.

We have said many times before that Collings' varnished mandolins are special, and this instrument is a shining example of just that. The tone is wide open, ultra responsive, and just absolutely beautiful. This mandolin exhibits an outstanding balance of depth and warmth paired with crisp, articulate note definition. A combination found in only the finest instruments, particularly those that have had time to mature and develop. The balance across the strings as well as up and down the fretboard are second to none, and the mandolin loses no power or tonal quality in any position. A K&K internal pickup has been professionally installed and the mandolin sounds very natural and true to its wonderful acoustic tone when amplified. We just completed a full set up to return this mandolin to Collings' shop specifications and it plays beautifully in all positions with no issues whatsoever. This is a very special instrument!
