For Northfield, the Model M was an early adventure into rethinking carving graduations, materials, processes, and finishing. The top-arching became the standard for the Artist Series mandolins as well as the A5 Special. The Model M was also the link from the seasoned Qingdao team to the new Marshall shop. Trips were made, night/day meetings online were held, and the experience of each team became shared knowledge. It has since been a deepening collaborative effort between both workshops.

We decided this year we would again make room for the Model M. We are better craftsmen then we were before... as it should be. Thusly, we feel these are the best Model M’s we have built.
