Northfield Workshop SHOPWORN ATO-2 Maple Archtop Octave Mandolin with Case

sku: NFOCT
The Northfield octave mandolin is perhaps the most intriguing instrument in their line, extending the "family" of mandolin instruments. This guitar-shaped octave mandolin features a carved arched top made of Italian red spruce and flat back and sides made from solid figured maple. This instrument provides a "punch" in the mids and high end, great for carving out space in a small ensemble or melodic playing up the fretboard. The one here now has two small, hard-to-see finish dings (on the top) from an over-zealous player, so you save a bit on a fantastic instrument.   More Details...
