Introduced in 1935, the Model-M is Epiphone's first electric Spanish instrument. Equipped with horseshoe magnet pickup, the Model-M is also the first laminated electric archtop, purposely built heavily to reduce feedback problems.

Access to the electronics is through a large felt-padded plate on the back of the instrument. The body is single bound back and front, brown finish with sunburst on top, bakelite pickguard and octagonal radio-style knobs.
