    It's over $5k. That's about the most expensive NF I've seen. Where/how would it be made compared to the less expensive models? Or is it mostly materials that account for the price..
    here's a link to the Big Mon model from the Northfield page:
    http://www.northfieldinstruments.com/mandolins/big-mon

    browse thru that and you can see the base price list of $4250, then for that mandolin in the classifieds it appears to have some extras of black top, violin neck, varnish finish(not sure if the base price includes varnish finish or not), deluxe headstock inlay, and probably some other items I've not noticed. So those extras add on to the base price.

    Hi Michael - that's a really nice sounding M model and a nice version of Red Haired Boy! Clear, clean picking and real depth to the sound.

    Enjoy it in good health!

    Congrats to 'Dylan in Colorado', the new owner of that spectacular looking Northfield Big Mon that was in the classifieds (http://www.mandolincafe.com/ads/97413#97413).

    Been watching that one, wondering when someone would grab it. If you're a member here Dylan, I sure would like to hear all about your new Northfield. Sure is a purdy one!

    i suppose i should list my F5S that arrived a few weeks ago, although i started a thread in another subforum
    http://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/sh...S-in-the-house

    this thread is a neat historical record of the mandos coming out of the Northfield group.

    this is, the BEST, mandolin, i have been fortunate to own.

    I had the opportunity to test drive this NF-5S of Skittle's. Just a wonderful instrument.

    i had a fantastic, in-depth conversation last Friday with Adrian Bagale, main-man at Northfield mandolins. boy, and i thought i had a mandolin jones... how wrong i was! this cat is all about mandolins and F5s in particular. after my eye/ear-opening experience with a Northfield "Big Mon" at this year's Wintergrass i had contacted Northfield about a possible build and it was on this subject that Adrian and i talked at length. to say he and his team are dedicated to the advancement of the F5 Artist Series is like saying Steph Curry has a mild interest in shooting 3-pointers! i learned so much about their passion and patience in moving forward, day by day, in the development of their Artist models. their motto seems to be this - "always be willing to make changes for the betterment of the instrument". who can argue with that?

    it's rare enough these days to be contacted by the head of a company on the telephone... even more rare to get an unwavering sense that the person on the end of the line is truly committed to your satisfaction. it's precisely for that reason that i've decided to go ahead with my order. i'm excited to hear/see the results! many thanks Adrian...

    For those interested in all things Northfield that don't follow them on Facebook(or look at the MC homepage), here is a link they just shared to a new online publication with some interesting articles.
