Northfield NFS-F5 F-style mandolin with optional tortoise binding. 

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

The NFS-F5EW is part of Northfield's S-Series. These F-style mandolins are simply appointed but beautifully crafted, with a style that is both traditional yet unique.

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.

Includes gray Airloom Recurve hard case.

Note: This model was previously known as the F5S. The name has changed but the specs and construction are the same.
