I just played some awesome instruments at guitar and banjo studio Beaumont, and then gitr c#nt#r (some fellers here don’t like it) and those instruments included two collings mandolins, one the loar 310f, a collings slope dread (not sure which model) and a br160 all at guitar and banjo. Then at git sinner I found a used br140 and played that some. My verdict is that the collings was the best easily. The br160 was good, but I didn’t like the strings it had, which made the d sound tinny. The br140 was much better cuz the strings were some I liked. I would be happy to own any of them.
