The Northfield Artist Series "4th Generation" F5 was developed in conjunction with mandolinist, Mike Marhsall; and after many years spent playing and dissecting the best vintage & boutique instruments, the Northfield F5 has developed into a mandolin that harkens back to the inspirations of Lloyd Loar & Co. Taking the mandolin's roots in classical music and its development in bluegrass into account, the team at Northfield have produced a world-class instrument that captures the sweetness, warmth and clarity we all dream of hearing when we place pick to string. Have a listen to our own Jordan Santiago playing JS Bach's "Sonata No. 1 in G Minor" on our latest 4th Generation F5 at the video tab herein. Priced with Airloom hard case!
