In addition to the array of premium features found standard on the MF5, this particular mandolin has been customized with quilted maple back and sides, a Cremona-style sunburst, and an ornate "torch and wire" headstock inlay.
This Collings MF5 is easily one of the most striking F-style mandolins we've ever seen. The quilted maple back is beautifully bookmatched and has a depth that's hard to appreciate in pictures, and the beautiful "torch and wire" inlay is a testament to Collings' immaculate craftsmanship and attention to detail.
We also love the Cremona sunburst finish, which has a mellow vintage brown feel that's a bit softer and subtler than the reddish-orange bursts typically seen on mandolins.
Of course, it doesn't just look good: This mandolin has a big, rich voice with great projection and a powerful chop--everything you'd expect from a Collings.
