FB700

The Mitchell FB700 bass features an offset double cutaway, carved mahogany body topped with a precision-cut AAA quilt maple veneer for high-end looks, and fitted with an easy playing 5-piece maple neck with rosewood fretboard. The premium MB4 paraffin-dipped alnico V humbucking pickups provide exceptional tone and microphonic/feedback rejection, while the active preamp gives players outstanding tonal control. Includes boost or cut to low, mid, and high frequencies, and a pickup blend control knob for even more sound sculpting options. High-tensile strength fretwire and die-cast high-ratio tuning machines add to the premium feel. Available in Natural (QNT) and Transparent Black (QBK).

The Mitchell TB Series bass offers traditional looks and tone for musicians searching for a modern rock, blues and pop workhorse that feels as comfortable on stage as it does in the studio.

TB500

The Mitchell TB500 bass starts with a custom contour alder body and one-piece, comfortable-profile maple neck with a smooth Indian rosewood fretboard. Standard split-single and single-coil paraffin-dipped alnico-V pickups go from blues to classic to modern rock, while mitigating microphonics and feedback. Separate volume controls for each pickup provide complete sound sculpting, along with a master tone for even more sonic options. The high-mass modern bridge ensures a robust tone, smooth sustain for days, and solid intonation. Available in Black with white pearloid pickguard (BK) or Transparent White Blonde with tortoise shell pickguard (TWB).

A 3-band active EQ provides up to 12dB boost or cut at 3 select frequencies for amazing tonal control for any style of music. Black nickel die-cast tuners and a high-mass bridge add to the premium appeal and tone. Available in Black (BK), Transparent Red (TR) and Honeyburst with AAA quilt maple veneer top (QHB).

MB200
