The NF-AT02 is the maple back/sides version of Northfield's impressive archtop octave mandolins.

As the name implies, the AT02 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.
