Collings MF5 F-style mandolin in near-mint condition.
Adirondack top, flame maple back/sides. Ebony fingerboard and bridge.
1-1/8" nut with compound radius fingerboard.
Optional "Fern" headstock inlay (originally a $500 upgrade).
Purchased new here at Tejon Street Music in 2016. This mandolin is like new except for two very small dings on the either side of the headstock (pictured). We were able to lightly buff these dings to minimize their appearance.
Aside from these minor cosmetic issues, the mandolin is in perfect shape with no signs of play.
Frets are at 100%. Action is still right at Collings factory specs.
Big, punchy tone with excellent projection and chop.
