    Default NMD "Northfield A5 Special"

    I recieved this beauty yesterday. It's pretty sweet! Still a little shy, but I like what I heard right out the box. Fills that little empty hole in my mandolin heart. I can really stomp on this thing. A+E strings are so, cool, their not jumping out for attention. Love the understated beauty, very much. Video soon. Shout out to Gryphon for a perfect transaction!

    I'll get rid of the MT2, never. Thier really different mandos. You gotta kinda finese the MT2,it's a grenade. This is more classic, I guess. But she can take hard playing with less worry about dynamics, you can just go.

    Sweet! I think those Northfield Special A models are really good looking. If I were in the market, it would top my list.

    Enjoy!

    Very nice! I had my eyes on that one for quite awhile. Was actually very surprised it lasted as long as it did over at Gryphon. Glad a fellow Mass resident took it home so I don't have to consider it anymore!
