NF-A5M


Our Perspective:
This beautiful USA made Mandolin just came in from the original owner - it has been played, showing some bumps and scratches, but the sound is huge! This mandolin is real open sounding, it will cut the mix without trouble - it comes with its original case! Don’t let this one slip away!!

Consignment sale, as such All sales Final!


Northfield Story:
In some ways, making these mandolins is about finding the way back home, for the instrument and for myself. For years I had been working with other companies making Gibson-style mandolins, based on the designs by Lloyd Loar during the 1920’s—but had never been that satisfied with the outcome. I had spent several years running back and forth from the USA to China, Japan and Korea. At one point I relocated to China with my family to work as the product development manager for Saga Musical Instruments. I, as well as a couple members of The Northfield Workshop, developed hundreds of items, for dozens of companies, in dozens of countries. We contributed to the development of some fantastic instruments and learned a lot in regards to what we enjoy about instrument building as well as what we don’t. What we enjoyed was the thrill of getting it right, and getting it right together. What we didn’t like...well, let’s just say that trying to get it right thousands and thousands of times ends up undermining “getting it right”. We aspire to make the best instruments not the most.
