Some minor dings and scratches mean you save $150.00!  A beefed-up version of Northfield Workshop’s F5 mandolin, the Big Mon features a larger body size, larger f-holes, and a 1-1/8" wide nut, which means more mids and bass and increased volume. Plus, it has an impressive hybrid finish of hand-rubbed spirit varnish with a very thin lacquer topcoat for protection.
