Brand new Northfield NFA-5VIE in a lustrous dark brown finish just into the shop! Developed in conjunction with the great Mike Marshall, the Northfield Artist mandolins are produced in limited numbers and feature unique bracing patterns to maximize the sonic potential of each given set of wood. This particular instrument is a 5-bar mandolin, voiced for a complex series of harmonics, maximum low-end responsiveness and omnidirectional projection. It's topped with Engelmann Spruce, which provides a warm, woody "pop" to the notes in the spirit of a well broken-in instrument. Priced with Airloom hard case.
