Northfield’s Left Handed Big Mon features a slightly enlarged body that’s tuned for responsiveness and a rich voice. The design changes are quite subtle, but the tone difference between the Big Mon and a standard-size lefty Northfield F are quite apparent. Expect an F5 with stronger mids and lows, and more openness in the bass register.

In creating this model, Northfield designers expanded the lower bout by 5mm, or a little bit more than 3/16”, and proportionally increased the body depth, F-hole size, and the scroll dimensions to ensure the instrument looks as attractive as a standard sized left handed F5. The Big Mon features modified recurve dimensions and back thicknesses as well, to bring forth the growly midrange that this model has become famous for. The hybrid varnish finish is the final ingredient in the Big Mon recipe, and offers more flexibility than nitrocellulose lacquer.

This left handed Big Mon is built with highly figured maple and Adirondack spruce. The fingerboard has a compound radius, large frets, and a scoop beyond the 20th fret. Grained ivoroid bindings to the body, fretboard and headstock, with vintage-style bottom purflings. Single-bound black pickguard, ebony board and bridge, Gilchrist/Northfield hinged tailpiece, and pearl headstock inlays. Gloss varnish finish throughout, nickel Grover tuners, and 1-1/8” nut.

With upgraded carbon fibre Recurve hardshell case.
