Interesting vintage hollow body, f-hole electric with tons of character. Just returned from our shop for a fret replacement and set up.

Specs; Spruce top, Maple back and sides in a sunburst gloss finish, Mahogany neck, single ply bound fretboard and body, Rosewood fretboard with pearl dot inlays, Rosewood bridge and P-90 pick up.

All original with exception of missing pick guard and new frets and new bone nut. Tuners, bridge and clam shell tailpiece cover appear to be original. Originals are included. Original pick guard is missing. Strap pin mounted on neck heel somewhere in the past.

Excellent-minus condition overall, but not bad relative to it's age. Does show natural distressing, most notably on the top with areas of missing finish on both sides of bridge feet. Also has dings, pings, scratches and finish crazing. As mentioned, frets and nut have been replaced and fretboard required minor planing. No cracks.

Includes non-original hard shell case.

MandoMutt's second Pava mandolin and it's just as impressive as the first. Great fit and finish, very good appointments and dynamic sound.

Specs; Adirondack Spruce top, figured Red Maple one piece back, Maple sides and neck, traditional sunburst gloss lacquer finish and single ply bound body. Radiused Ebony fretboard and nickel hardware includes cast Allen tailpiece and Gotoh tuning gears and Mother-of-Pearl script headstock inlay.

Very impressive sound, right out of the box. I'm thinking these mandolins might give the Ellis A-5's a serious run for the money, quite frankly. Dry and woody with plenty of pop. Really strong mid-range and a big bluegrass chop.

New condition without flaw or blemish. Acquired in a trade with another dealer. Offered as a used instrument.

Includes Canadian hard shell case. Trades gladly considered on this fine made in America instrument.

Super special Collings MT, s/n 843 that features top shelf woods and a mature voice. The MT is Collings' "entry level" mandolin, but this model is an extraordinary "entry level", featuring the same impeccable quality and standards as their Deluxe models. Simple but Sensational!

Specs; Engelmann Spruce top, highly figured Maple back/sides/neck in a caramel sunburst satin finish. Radiused Ebony fretboard, 1-1/8" nut width. Chrome hardware includes cast tailpiece and Elite tuning machines with Ivoroid knobs.

A delightful sounding mandolin that a deep, dry and woody tone. Collings mandolins provide a more modern sound to my ear, but the MT leans a little more towards tradition, perhaps due in part to the Engelmann top. Also loud and responsive with a wicked chop.

Excellent-minus condition. Pinky shine below strings. Light finish scratches here and there and a couple tiny dings. Headstock has some string scratches and there is moderate fret wear. Has a 1-1/2" crack near the bass `F' hole that has been professionally repaired. Finish looks a little funky around binding where the arm rests.

Includes original Collings hard shell case. Trades considered on this fine American made instrument.
