Northfield NFS-F2SEWN oval hole f-style mandolin with Engelmann top and optional wide nut.
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 Engelmann spruce top, which offers a slightly warmer, sweeter tone than the Adirondack models. To our ears, the difference between Engelmann and Adirondack is subtle, but players seeking a somewhat mellower voice may want to consider the Engelmann top.
Tonally, this F2S has the warm, woody tone you'd expect from an oval hole, but the the Engelmann really gives this mandolin an extra layer of sweetness and complexity.
