Used Northfield 4th Gen F-style mandolin with wide nut, torch inlay, and K&K pickup. Built in 2020.
The 4th Gen F5 is Northfield's top-of-the-line F-style mandolin. In many ways, the 4th Gen represents a culmination of over a decade of research, experimentation, and collaboration. The result is a truly exceptional mandolin.
This is the 19th 4th Gen mandolin made by Northfield. In addition to the standard Adirondack top and highly figured maple back and sides, this 4th Gen features an optional 1-3/16" wide nut and custom torch headstock inlay.
This mandolin features Waverly tuners with ebony knobs. (Northfield has since starting using Gotoh Deluxe tuners on the 4th Gen.)
Tonally, this mandolin takes the warm, rich, complex Northfield tone we love and cranks it up to 11. It's a big, gutsy mandolin with great chop and projection.
Includes Northfield Airloom Deluxe rectangular hardshell case in good condition.

Condition & History
This 4th Gen was purchased from our shop in December of 2020. The original owner sold it back to us in order to raise funds for other needs.
The K&K Mandolin Twin pickup was installed here at Avenue Guitars.
The mandolin is in very good condition overall. There are a handful of marks on the top from normal use, but nothing major.
No prior repairs or issues. Always kept in a humidity and climate controlled environment.
Freshly detailed, buffed, and set up here at Avenue Guitars. Plays very well and has plenty of room for adjustment at the bridge.
