A5 Special

High grade Italian Spruce, Sugar Maple, and french polished varnishing on a stripped down A.


A5 Special

A unique instrument and a blend of a few Northfield designs. This A5 borrows from our very popular Model M and Artist Series Mandolins to create a powerful response in an elegantly appointed instrument. Limited release.

    This mandolin has a handful of unique features that set it apart from Northfield's Standard Series mandolins, including a master grade Italian spruce top, sugar maple back and sides, spirit varnish finish, and Nugget tailpiece.
