Historic F-style Mandolin from the House of Stathopoulo
Epiphone presents the new Masterbilt® MM-40L Mandolin, a classic f-style mandolin with an oval sound hole created in the spirit of the first generation of Epiphone Masterbilt mandolins. Featuring a Solid Spruce top, Solid Maple body, Grover® machine heads, and a traditional Masterbilt headstock in a beautiful aged gloss Vintage Sunburst finish.
The Masterbilt Tradition
The Epiphone Masterbilt Collection was first launched in the early 1930s around the time Epiphone opened its legendary factory and showroom in downtown Manhattan. The showroom drew the very best jazz players of the day including a young Les Paul. Today, the Epiphone Masterbilt Collection uses those same construction techniques and materials including solid wood tops and traditional bracing.
