From Northfield:

A unique instrument and a blend of a few Northfield designs. This A5 borrows from our very popular Model M and Artist Series Mandolins to create a powerful response in an elegantly appointed instrument. This mandolin has a handful of unique features that set it apart from Northfield's Standard Series including a master grade Italian spruce top, premium maple back, sides, and neck, spirit varnish finish, and Nugget tailpiece.
