Thread: Northfield Model M vs Model M+

  1. #1

    Default Northfield Model M vs Model M+

    Love all the stuff coming out of the NF shop.

    Model M+ seems to be a recent addition. So what actually makes it a +?

    Tuners hardware is black. Are they different tuners?
    Nugget tailpiece (very cool imo) is also black but appears to be otherwise standard.
    Cost is approximately $300 more.

    What else is different?

    Maybe
    Here's a Model M with sunburst that isn't listed or priced as a +
    It doesn't have the black tuner hardware either

    Either way they both look and sound great.

    I have no idea, but suggest reaching out to Derek at Northfield and he can definitely give you the full scoop.
    He was really great to work with.

    Agreed Drew, they are great to work with. I'm not really in the market just interested speculation.
