(NEW) Another bolt of inspiration from our friends at Northfield! This A Model uses their best available tonewoods, with a premium Italian spruce top and figured (highly flamed) maple back/sides and neck. It is stained in distinctive and brooding Icelandic Brown finish, and has everything that you could want in a high end mandolin. It is fully bound in ivoroid, including the fingerboard, peghead and wooden pick guard. It has the standard 1 1/8" nut width.
The tuners are Gotoh with ebony buttons, and this features the oh-so-easy Nugget tailpiece for quick string changing. The spirit varnish finish insures quick response and a high dynamic range. The case is the lightweight Airloom "Recurve" which offers an excellent balance of protection and practicality.
AMW Price: $3,995 (Online checkout, Northfield 2023 MAP price)
