M-30 Jorma Kaukonen

The Basics

The M-30 Jorma Kaukonen Custom Artist Edition features a large soundhole and a scallop-braced top of rare Italian Alpine spruce, for an incredibly full tone and impressive dynamic range. The back and sides of East Indian rosewood provide a rich, warm bass and strong projection. Jorma's personal involvement in the design yields the optimum instrument for his evolved fingerstyle blues.
