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.
Note: This new mandolin shows some minimal signs of play, specifically a handful of light finger drags on the pickguard. We have marked it down accordingly.
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 ismore nuanced than some players might expect.
