The Epiphone MM-30SE Acoustic-Electric Mandolin boasts a solid spruce top that will actually improve in tone over time”a highly-prized trait of better acoustic instruments.
Since a humble start in Sparta, Greece in the late 1800's, Epiphone founder Anastasios Stathopoulo was commited to detailed quality, later with his sons he took their bureoning Manhattan family luthier business into a world-renown fretted instrument maker and innovator. In fact, some of the original "A. Stathopoulo" round-back mandolins are some of the most prized, rare vintage mandolins in exhistence. In the late 50's, another famous fretted instrument company known for mandolins, Gibson, purchased Epiphone and assured the continuance of Anastasios' mandolin expertise' legacy.
Traditional Epiphone craftsmanship
The Epiphone MM-30SE is an easily recognized "A" style or "teardrop" mandolin, expertly constructed with a Mahogany body and set, Mahogany neck, providing warm acoustic tone. The "bite" if the mandolin's sound is from its solid spruce top, which will only sound better as it matures. It also features the traditional floating Rosewood bridge, Rosewood fingerboard, Gold hardware and Tortoise pickguard emblazoned with the iconic Epiphone "E" and comes in Antique Sunburst finish. It is "electrified" with a built-in, passive bridge piezo pickup with a 1/4" output jack. Made by Germany's Shadow Company, this SH900 pickups provides real acoustic tone by capturing not only the string tone but by also capturing the natural acoustic tone of the body.
Solid top, solidly backed
The solid-top MM-30SE mandolin is protected by the Epiphone Lifetime Limited Warranty featuring Gibson 24/7/360 Customer Service and guarantees the instrument against defects in materials or workmanship.

The Epiphone MM-30E is an acoustic-electric mandolin that features a mahogany body with a solid spruce top, perfect for the modern folk music player. I think Epiphone has done a pretty good job with this mandolin. Is not the best electic mandolin out in the market but it's perfect for a beginer player.
Well, we loved the mandolin once we got it, had our first practice, and as we packed up and went to unplug the cord from the jack, it pulled out from the instrument, totally!!!! We couldn't believe it. It sounded great and we had a great practice, but it broke, the first time out of the box to play it!!! It's at the Guitar Center nearest us now being repaired. We hope it will be like new again, if not, we will ask for it to be replaced with another one. Very disappointing unfortunately :( We'll see how it goes.
in this price range, this mandolin has a better tone than the fender or ibanez ae mandos in its price. dont pay attention to the reviews that say anything about playability for it can be changed
Not too impressed, sorry to say. I wanted a "middle of the line" Mandolin, and seemed to have gotten a "hard to play, middle of the line" Mandolin. I have played a Fender that only cost $199.00 and it was much easier to play. The strings on this Epi are stiff, and much closer together. It doesn't have a real clear sound.
