Just in, and we're betting it won't last long! This pre-owned Collings MT2 mandolin is from fairly early in their mandolin production (serial 228); and it's labeled "MT2-R" ~ "R" for "Red Spruce." It's been played, and gigged, a lot over its lifetime, but remains in very good overall condition. It bears signs of playwear across its surfaces, and a strap button and K&K Pure Mini pickup have been installed. Throaty, open sound, with plenty of pop and projection. If you're in the market for a Collings mandolin, and you don't mind a little honest wear, grab this one while it's still available. Priced with its original hard case.
