    This mandolin offers Northfield's world class, impressive handcrafted quality and superb tone, but at a more accessible price point than their master series instruments. The F-style body has a solid Adirondack red spruce top finished in a striking satin lacquer black. It also features solid figured maple back and sides and a 3-piece hard maple neck with striped ebony center strip. Simple appointments include a bound, sunburst flame maple pickguard, single-ply ivoroid top binding, and Schaller tuners with black buttons.
