Northfield Mandolins NFS-F5WN S-Series Wide Nut Mandolin

Photo for Ad 216152


The "WN" at the end of the model code stands for "Wide Neck," so if you find your fingers a bit cramped on a typical 1 1/8" mandolin neck this Northfield may win over your left hand very quickly. The surprising thing is that for most of us these WN Northfield necks don't feel wide at all when you're playing, you just have a bit more room and fewer muffed notes. With its Adirondack top this NFS delivers a lot of tone and volume for the price. If you're more into sound and playability, and less concerned about binding and inlay, it's a wise choice.

Acoustic guitars, mandolins, and banjos are still the mainstays at Gryphon, as they have been for over 45 years, though our inventory of steel guitars and ukuleles continues to grow as well. In recent years an important part of our growth has been in instruments by very small companies and individual makers, as we continue to keep one foot, or at least several toes, outside the mainstream music industry.
