Collings has expanded the number of options on their mandolins recently, and this Merlot color is one of our favorites. With a gloss finish on the face, ivoroid binding on the top edge and ebony pickguard with matching binding, the result is a classy look of reserved elegance. The Adirondack soundboard gives this F model a lot of headroom and a powerful chord chop when you're playing back-up, but it's also capable of a smooth melodic tone, especially if you move your pick closer to the end of the fretboard.

Acoustic guitars, mandolins, and banjos are still the mainstays at Gryphon, as they have been for over 45 years, though our inventory of steel guitars and ukuleles continues to grow as well. In recent years an important part of our growth has been in instruments by very small companies and individual makers, as we continue to keep one foot, or at least several toes, outside the mainstream music industry.
