Northfield Workshops' Big Mon mandolins feature larger bodies and f-holes for more mids, more bass, and increased volume with less effort. This model is built with an Adirondack (red) spruce top and a figured Northeastern red maple back, sides, and neck with an impressive array of high-end features. The Big Mon offers impressive, world-class handcrafted quality and a highly desirable sound -- it compares well to instruments costing twice the price.   More Details...
