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.

To learn more, check out Northfield's official Artist Series product page.

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.

2-Bar Bracing

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 is more nuanced than some players might expect.
