2017 Northfield Artist F5 showing significant wear in the form of lots of various dings, scrapes, scratches, pick marks etc. Even though the wear is heavy, the mandolin remains crack free and is structurally sound with no prior repairs and none needed. For those undeterred by aesthetic wear, or even prefer a distressed look, this represents an incredible bargain in one of the top offerings from Northfield with a current price of $7000.

This a powerful mandolin with a sweet voice that reminds us of some of the great vintage instruments that we have encountered. It responds beautifully to a light touch with a dry and crisp treble response, punchy midrange, and a balanced low end. This is a mandolin that will definitely "cut a mix" of instruments without being brittle or harsh and certainly provides a wonderful solo mandolin experience. The setup is low and comfortable and plays great in all positions with no issues.
