Northfield Octave Mandolin
This Northfield Archtop Octave Mandolin has a carved spruce top and flat, guitar-style mahogany back and sides a design that was influenced by the Martin C-2 and C-4 guitars from the 1930s.
This design choice has produced an instrument that is comfortable to hold and play. The unusual construction technique is very well suited to octave mandolins and has a vibrant high end frequency response while keeping the balance and the articulation across all the strings.
Northfield mahogany Octave Mandolins come with either a sunburst top or, as with this one, a black top. Price includes a hardshell case.
