This stunning Northfield NFA-5V2E "Artist Series" mandolin has an Engelmann spruce top and Northfield's "Variation 2" 2-bar bracing style.

Tonally, this Artist Series mandolin is big, punchy, and powerful while still offering up lots of warmth and low end.

2-Bar Bracing

This Artist mandolin features Northfield's "Variation 2" 2-bar bracing system. This style of bracing offers a little more projection and cut than the 5-bar system, making it an ideal choice for bluegrass players.

While the 2-bar and 5-bar Artist mandolins each have their own personalities, we've found that the distinction between two designs is subtle. The 5-bar is a bit warmer and deeper while the 2-bar is slightly brighter and has a little more punch, but to our ears the tonal difference is more nuanced than some players might expect.
