Simply stated, there is no other F-style mandolin in this price point that offers the kind of tone and craftsmanship present in the F5M. Beautifully made from figured maple and Adirondack spruce, the NF-F5M has the looks of a classic bluegrass mandolin, with a powerful chop and articulation to match. Though this used instrument has some cosmetic wear (visible in the photos), it is structurally sound and ready to be played. Priced with hard case!
