Northfield's mandolins offer amazing craftsmanship, superb playability, and a rich, throaty voice, making them tough to beat at any price.

The NFS-F5 is part of Northfield's S-Series. The F5S is simply appointed but beautifully crafted, with a style that is traditional yet unique.

Tonally, Northfield has done a remarkable job of reproducing the complex, played-in quality you'd expect from a 100-year-old instrument. Northfield's mandolins are big, warm, and powerful--it's a tone that you can feel as much as hear.

This mandolin features an Adirondack spruce top, which we feel offers slightly more power and projection than the Engelmann models. To our ears, the difference between the two tonewoods is subtle, but players looking for a little more volume and clarity should consider the Adirondack top.

Optional black top finish.

Includes gray Airloom Recurve hard case.

Mandolin pictured is the actual instrument for sale.
