Well, here it is at last. Bill and the crew at Collings Guitars have just introduced their top of the line bluegrass mandolin, styled after the 1923 Gibson F-5 originally developed by Lloyd Loar at Gibson and made world famous in later years by Bill Monroe. This one has the bark and bite that will satisfy most any bluegrass mandolin player. Check out that cool new tailpiece design. Naturally, the fit and finish hold up to the closest scrutiny.
