2019 Northfield NF-A5 Special, Italian Spruce, Figured Maple, K&K Pickup - USED - SOLD



(USED) In just a couple of years, Northfield has become the leading mandolin brand in our shop, offering world class instruments with tone for days, at price points that are extremely reasonable, considering the care and craftsmanship.  This A5 Special just arrived on consignment, and appears to have opened up nicely over the last four years.  It is loud and highly responsive, and has a few dings and scratches to show that it has been in service.  You won't be afraid to attack this one with everything you've got!

Italian spruce top with deep dark sunburst finish and varnish finish.  The back and sides are red maple with a deep flame, very beautiful.  Tortoise body binding for that stealthy look.  It has their soft "V" neck profile with 1 1/8" nut width, ebony fingerboard and dot inlays.  The mandolin also has a bound tortoise pick guard, Nugget tailpiece and Gotoh tuners. 

As previously stated, there is a bit of cosmetic wear on the top, and few pick scratches and dings, shown in the pics.  Fret wear is very minimal, with just the slightest bit of wear showing under the A course.  K&K pickup and strap button installed.  Includes Recurve Airloom case.
