Brand new Northfield A5 Special. Incorporating all of Northfield's "Artist Series" features, this mandolin epitomizes the maker's continued success in providing everything one looks for in the absolute best mandolins available, but at a fraction of the cost of those that it rivals.

This instrument has everything we look for when qualifying for the highest standards set by the great builders of our time. Powerful and loud, yet delicate and nuanced. Warm and complex, but still somehow bright and articulate. Completely balanced both across the tonal spectrum and up and down the fretboard. Oh yeah, and it's drop dead gorgeous! This mandolin truly deserves the title "SPECIAL".

Master grade Italian spruce top, highly figured maple back/sides/neck, varnish finish, Gotoh tuners w/black buttons, fully bound with triple binding, triple bound tortoise pick guard, Nugget tailpiece, ebony fretboard with pearl descending size position markers, ebony adjustable bridge and endpin, radiused fretboard. 1-1/8" bone nut. Comes with an attractive grey "Airloom Recurve" case from Northfield.
