Lowe Vintage is an Authorized Dealer for Collings mandolins! From the Collings website:
"The MT is our entry-level satin finish A-model with simplified appointments. But don't let the "entry-level" part fool you- its built with the same quality construction as our higher end models. With a fully carved Englemann spruce top and maple back and sides, the MT is undoubtedly one of the best values out there in a professional quality A-style mandolin."
