2014 Northfield NF-F5M Big Mon

Super nice Northfield Big Mon model. This one features a highly figured one piece Maple back, modern setup combined with a remarkable traditional bluegrass sound.

Specs; Premium Adirondack Spruce top, Premium Red Maple back/sides/neck in a blonde hybrid varnish finish, 3-ply tortoise bindings throughout, tone bar bracing, radiused Ebony fretboard and bridge, Schaller tuning gears with Ebony knobs, engraved James tailpiece and vine headstock inlay. Violin varnished neck, 1-3/16" nut width, professionally installed pick up (possibly K & K) and abbreviated Ebony pickguard also triple bound.

Traditional sound featuring a dry, woody tone with excellent balance and sustain. Plenty of volume and a monster bluegrass chop.

Excellent-plus condition overall. Does have some play wear with a smallish ding or three on the top and a few superficial finish scratches on back. Clip-on tuner blemishes on the back of headstock and light fretwear.

Includes a Loar copy oblong case with vintage green interior. Trades gladly considered.
