The MT2 is the deluxe version of the Collings A-style mandolin. It has a full body gloss finish, highly figured maple back, sides and neck, ivoroid binding on the top, back neck and headstock. And this particular mandolin is among the first to feature a beautiful Carpathian spruce top, which is available on a limited basis. Sourced from the Carpathian mountains of central/eastern Europe, this tonewood is often compared to Red Spruce for its exceptional stiffness, yet it is also incredibly lightweight and responsive. With rich and complex overtones and a strong midrange presence, this mandolin rings like a bell and has a resonance that can be felt throughout the instrument.
