Brand new Northfield NFA-5VIE Artist Model in gorgeous Sheraton Brown -- and our first with the new Spirit Satin Varnish finish! 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 premium Engelmann Spruce, which provides a warm, woody "pop" to the notes in the spirit of a well broken-in instrument, and is finished off with the torch headstock inlay. Priced with Airloom hard case.
