Wow! Northfield keeps raising the bar while challenging the competition with the best prices. This model is simple, elegant even, but it’s got all the right stuff where it counts. The sound, responsiveness, tone, playability, feel…it’s all top notch just like you’d expect.
The Northfield Model M has been a long time in the making. But you can’t rush perfection. Lots of testing and real world application went into the development of this workhorse. And that’s what it is, a mandolin intended for lots of use by even the most demanding of players. And it satisfies in every way! The construction is top notch, and the materials and build quality focuses on what is really important while cutting no corners. The notes jump out with command, the tonal qualities are rich, and neck feels great, and it plays like a dream. If this mandolin meets your budget, then look no further. You’ll have to spend much more to get something even as good in a lot of instances.
