The Northfield "Big Mon" features a slightly enlarged F5 body, which produces a very rich, powerful sound. All Big Mon models feature premium grade tonewoods and a varnish finish, and there's a noticeable difference in the openness of sound and projection they carry relative to a standard NF-5. If you're adventurous enough to push the boundaries of tradition, but you demand the woody power we've come to expect in a serious bluegrass mandolin, check out Big Mon while he's still in stock! Priced with hard case.
