The list of manufacturers making a better A-style mandolin than Northfield is pretty short - even base-level models like this NFM-A5 boast the exceptionally rich and clear sound that have turned countless pickers into fans of these great instruments. Combining an Englemann spruce top with a figured maple neck, back, and sides for premium quality and some impressive punch, the NFM-A5 is the most popular Northfield we carry and does a great job of introducing new players to these outstanding eight-strings. We opted to get this one in a leather burst finish, for a vintage-inspired, classic look that doesn't compromise the delicacy of the varnish and keeps this mandolin open and powerful in all registers. Included in the price is an Airloom Recurve hard-shell case.
