This stunning Northfield NFA-5V1E "Artist Series" mandolin has an Engelmann spruce top and Northfield's "Variation 1" 5-bar bracing style.

To learn more, we recommend checking out Northfield's official Artist Series product page.

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.
