Stunning Northfield Artist Series F-style mandolin with an Italian spruce top and Northfield's "Variation 1" 5-bar bracing style.

Custom features include a one-piece back, "Deluxe" headstock inlay design, and Northfield's beautiful "Icelandic Brown" finish. It's a deep, rich brown that still allows the character of the wood to shine through.

Like all Artist models, this mandolin has an exceptional tone that is warm and complex while still offering excellent projection and clarity. It really covers all the bases.

Includes rectangular Airloom Deluxe case.

5-Bar Bracing

This Artist mandolin features Northfield's "Variation1" 5-bar bracing system. This style of bracing is designed to produce a warmer, mellower tone with a richer low end.

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.
