We were lucky enough to snag another one of these incredibly cool Northfield NF-AT01 archtop octave mandolins.

As the name implies, the AT01 is tuned an octave below a standard mandolin. This gives it a warm, open tone with amazing low end and resonance. This is a really fun instrument that's truly in a league of its own.

Includes molded plastic hardshell case with crushed velvet-like interior.
