2011 Northfield F-5 

Master Model

Sounding as good as it looks, this mandolin's Engelmann top produces a mellow, sweet tone. Plenty loud, this mandolin is very responsive, even across all the strings, and has an airy "pop", that gives it a little different sound from a mandolin topped with red spruce. Not a "lesser" sound, just a "different" sound. The current price for a new Northfield, with the above specs, is $4,000 and includes a six month wait. This mandolin, Serial #110139, is available for immediate delivery at a price of $3,600 (delivered). SOLD!!!

"Big Mon" Master Model

This might be the "King Kong" of all Big Mon models. We've heard, seen, owned, and played lots of Northfields, standard F-5s and Big Mons and if this isn't the very best, it's at least in the top two or three. Premium Red Maple, Adirondack Spruce, and Northfield's attention to detail, has resulted in one powerful mandolin. Extras include: a James tailpiece and a violin finish neck. This mandolin has the traditonal fingerboard, with a modest radius and D-shape neck profile. It's had a recent re-fret and new set-up, with heavy fret wire, 1 1/16" pearl nut and a tune-up/re-fit of the bridge assembly. It now plays better than new. The varnish finish exhibits honest play wear. It's an awesome looking Big Mon, that's been "played in" and sounds as good as any Northfield we've heard.This mandolin, Serial #110130 is availble for immediate delivery, at a price of $3,900 SOLD!!!
