Northfield Big Mon, Black Top, Adirondack Spruce, Maple, Wide Nut - NEW - SOLD


(NEW) One of the instruments we were most looking forward to on our first Northfield order was the fabled Big Mon.  This F-Style mandolin has slightly increased proportions (5mm wider at its widest point) which results in not only more volume, but a more pronounced throaty midrange and bass response.  Think of it as "F Extra!"

The top is special Adirondack spruce and the back (painted black!) and the sides and neck are highly figured maple.  The fingerboard and bridge are ebony.  For hardware, there are Gotoh tuners and a nickel-plated engraved Gilchrist/Northfield tailpiece.  The pick guard is bound ebony.  Wider 1 3/16" nut width.  Hybrid varnish finish with vintage sunburst.  Includes the Airloom "Recurve" case.
