Regular price $3,295 (SOLD)

Northfield's mandolins offer beautiful craftsmanship, superb playability, and a rich, throaty voice. These mandolins are tough to beat at any price.

The NFS-F5 is Northfield's flagship F-style mandolin. As part of Northfield's S-Series, the F5S is simply appointed but beautifully crafted, with a style that is both traditional yet entirely unique to Northfield.

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.
