A Stage-ready Beauty of a Mandolin!
If you want the classic look, feel, and sound of a vintage "F"-style mandolin but also want your mando to sound amazing on any live stage, then you're in luck. Epiphone's fantastic MM-50E Professional puts it all in your hands! This acoustic-electric mandolin gives you all the hallmarks you'd expect from a Lloyd Loar-inspired instrument, from its solid spruce top to its flame maple body to its elegantly understated appointments. The MM-50E Professional is an incredible-sounding acoustic instrument, but if you plug it in, you'll instantly find your onstage companion. An adjustable pickup system lets you dial in the perfect balance between string pairs so that you can sound your best!
Since the MM-50E Professional's electronics are mounted in the pickguard, you won't lose any of this beautiful instrument's acoustic potential. It's perfect for both unplugged performances and the biggest stages! Epiphone equipped this mando with the Quad NanoMag pickup system, which captures the true tone of the instrument. Beneath each string pair is an individual "coil" that can easily be adjusted via its own trim pot on the pickguard. Once you've dialed in the string balance you want, you're all set!Epiphone MM-50E Professional Acoustic-electric Mandolin Features:
