Lowe Vintage is an Authorized Dealer for Collings mandolins! From the Collings website:
"The MT O combines our affordable satin finish and simplified appointments with the same quality construction and tone woods as our fully-appointed A-style models. With a fully carved Engelmann spruce top and maple back and sides, the MT O produces a rich, woody tone that one would expect from a professional quality mandolin. The oval sound hole accentuates the bass and low mid response while providing a warm, open tonality that is rich in overtones."
