Mitchell Guitars Introduces MD Series

The new family of electric guitars from Mitchell gives a nod toward traditional, time-tested motifs, with an array of features for today’s expressive, high-performance player. 

Today we’re showcasing the company’s MD Series, tailored for the modern, heavy and hard rock player looking for a refined, contemporary look and more aggressive sound dynamics. With a variety of feature configurations and finish options there’s an MD Series guitar for every player. 

Watch this video to find out more, and check out the MD Series models below. 

MD400

The best-in-class Mitchell MD400 offers a carved, double cutaway mahogany body and a one-piece mahogany set neck for superior tone and sustain. Both the neck and body are carefully bound in a stunning multi-ply binding/purfling to produce an amazing eye-catching aesthetic. For a more advanced, modern sound, Mitchell includes a rail-style ceramic humbucker in the bridge and a mini-rail humbucker in the neck position. They both provide a more consistent magnetic pull versus standard pole pieces, enhancing overall tone and sustain. It also allows for additional picking room while also expanding the visual beauty of the guitar top. The string-thru body design increases sustain even further, and high-ratio locking tuning machines make precision tuning easy.

The MD400 is available in Black (BK), Transparent Ocean Blue (TOB) or optional Transparent Purple (QPR), Natural (QNT) and Transparent Forest Green (QFG) AAA quilt maple veneer tops.
