“F” Style Mandolin Tone
The MM-50 features a Solid Spruce top which helps give the MM-50 the cutting power that players associate with the F-5 design along with figured maple back and sides, a ‘Master Model’ style rosewood bridge, unbound f-holes, and a multi-bound tortious style pickguard. The hand-set SlimTaper™ “C” profile maple neck includes a rosewood dot fingerboard with a 14” scale length, a 1.06” nut for smooth action and clear precise notes in all positions, and a traditional bell-shaped truss rod cover. The Vintage Sunburst (VS) finish not only makes for a classic look, but is also thin enough to allow the Spruce top to resonate and show off the tonewood’s subtle characteristics. The headstock features the historic profile of the Lloyd Loar original with a Flower Pot inlay and pearloid “Epiophone” inlay.
