This mandolin has been marked down $100 due to a small scuffed area on the back of the neck. It is a new instrument with the full Northfield warranty.

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

The NFS-F5EWN is part of Northfield's S-Series. As 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 Northfield F5S has an Engelmann spruce top, which offers a slightly warmer, sweeter tone than the Adirondack models.

It still has plenty of power and volume, but to our ears it's a bit less bright than Adirondack and would make a good choice for players seeking a somewhat mellower sound.

This mandolin has been customized with a 1-3/16" wide nut. This is 1/16" wider than a stander 1-1/8" nut, a difference of approximately 5%.

In addition to the wide nut, this Northfield has custom tortoise binding and matching tortoise pickguard. 

Includes gray Airloom Recurve hard case.
