Before you is a gateway. It may lead to parts unknown but the path eventually steers towards home. A sound and feel that is as unique and novel as it is familiar. At Northfield we place innovation and boundary-pushing at the top of our list.

Our flat top octave is a creation merging traditional small-bodied guitar building with friendlier ergonomic body features. The shallower, tapered body is more accessible to mandolin players and the resultant tone has a sonic signature that does not mingle with other instruments or get lost in the mix.

This instrument has it’s own voice. Rich, woody, focused…As great for back-up as it is for solo and melody work.
