At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be an Authorized Dealer of Collings Guitars and Mandolins. The Collings MFO Deluxe adds an oval sound-hole and deluxe appointments to the popular MF mandolin. It also has a 12-fret neck and wider 1-3/16″ nut width to capture the sound and feel of prewar oval-hole mandolins. This MFO Deluxe (serial #1695) demonstrates Collings’ meticulous attention to detail and unparalleled commitment to quality. It features a carved solid Adirondack spruce top plate that is lightly X-braced and extremely responsive as a result. Its carved flame Maple back and sides are stunning and help the top project and sing. Although it’s not quite as loud and as cutting as f-hole Collings mandolins, this MFO Deluxe has a sweet, warm tone that is richly dynamic. This an impressive instrument from an impressive builder. Please call (970) 728-9592 or e-mail for an in-hand description.
