The Epiphone MM-30S Mandolin is a deluxe A-style mandolin that combines delightful traditional features with robust modern appointments. Adhering to the style that Epiphone's founder grew up with, based on his father's beautifully crafted models, Epi Stathopoulo’s dedication to raising the bar with regard to craftsmanship and quality has guaranteed this model exceeds the demands of today's musicians.
The bowl-back body design has been crafted using solid spruce for the top, and mahogany for the back and sides. The mahogany provides a distinctively warm character, which gives the MM-30S a sweet sounding timbre. The solid spruce top acts as a highly resonant soundboard, with F-hole adornments that contribute to the superb projection ability of this model. The body has been treated to a high quality vintage sunburst finish, whilst the body top along the lower bout is protected by a stylish tortoise pickguard with classic "E" logo.
Fitted to the body is a handset mahogany neck, which provides a sturdy and reliable playing support to glide along. Married to the neck is a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard. White dot position inlays guide your path along the fingerboard. Each one of the 8-strings is held firmly by the hard working gold tuning machines, designed exclusively by Epiphone in Nashville, Tennessee.
Each string is secured to the body via the rosewood floating, adjustable bridge, which enables you to attenuate string action to suit your playing style. The seamless connection between strings and body guarantees optimum intonation and sustain.
The Epiphone MM-30S Mandolin with vintage sunburst finish is a sophisticated model that combines exquisite tonewoods to superb effect. The delightful timbre is match by a joyful playing feel, guaranteeing endless enjoyment. The level of craftsmanship on display here is often associated with premium models, yet comes at a highly affordable price. The complexity of the mandolin's timbre is projected effortlessly, making it ideal for professionals who're looking for an ideal touring/recording model.
