2016 Northfield F5S A

The Northfield F5S A is an exceptional sounding and finely made F5, featuring a carved figured maple and Adirondack spruce body, tone bar bracing, and bound tortoise celluloid pickguard. A traditionally built and voiced instrument, the Northfield F5S A consistently scores high points with players looking for a high-end F-style instrument with great chop and power, excellent fretwork and set up, and a wonderful neck feel at A-style instrument pricing.

Satin amber lacquer finish, ebony fingerboard and bridge, cast tailpiece, tortoise-bound top, Gotoh tuners, bound headstock with pearl logo.

This instrument is in excellent condition and has been set-up here at Folkway. The frets have been dressed here, as well, and play beautifully. Vintage softened V feeling neck carve, 1-1/8” nut width, radiussed fingerboard.
