Our latest Northfield Artist Model will appeal to players looking for maximum warmth of tone. Constructed with Mike Marshall's signature 5-Bar bracing schematic and a premium Italian Alpine Spruce top, this Artist Series F5 has the lovely "pop" players with a more sensitive right hand covet. But, can it still do bluegrass? Sure it can. It's all personal at the end of the day; and this particular mandolin would be most at home in the hands of someone looking for a do-it-all instrument (from classical, to bluegrass, and everything in between). It's also built with the wider 1 3/16" nut width, and priced with a deluxe Airloom hard case.
