Mitchell Guitars Presents the MS Series

Built with a nod toward traditional, time-tested motifs, then re-imagined for the players of today, Mitchell electric guitars stand at the intersection where precision meets passion.

Today we’re featuring Mitchell’s MS Series guitar, which features a single cutaway body, slim-tapered set neck profile and string-though-body construction. The MS Series is ideal for rock, metal, blues and jazz players who appreciate proven, time-tested designs.

The Mitchell MS400 features a thin profile, mahogany body and an easy-playing shallow-C mahogany set neck design. A unique heel joint provides supreme playing comfort and upper fret access. The guitar includes dual humbucking paraffin-dipped alnico V pickups that reduce microphonics and unwanted feedback.

Separate volume controls for each pickup lets the player blend as needed, while a pull coil-tap allows players to split either humbucking pickup into a single-coil. The flame maple binding and purfling further enhance the high-end look. High-ratio locking tuners provide precise tuning, while the jumbo frets and string-thru body design offer increased sustain and bite.

Before delivery to dealers, all Mitchell electric guitars receive a complete stateside setup and quality control inspection to ensure exceptional playability. The MS400 is available in Black or Honeyburst with a AAA quilt maple veneer top.
