You know that feeling when you pick up an instrument and you can feel it resonating throughout your body when you play it, and you just can’t put it down?  Well this is one of those!

This Northfield Octave Mandolin Archtop has the maple/spruce combination which gives it clarity and cutting power in it’s lower register.  The body shape of this instrument is also very comfortable to play unlike some other octave mandolins out there, which can tend to feel a little awkward at times.
