Mitchell Guitars Unveils New TD Series

(Image credit: Mitchell Guitars)

With a nod toward traditional, time-tested motifs—re-imagined for a completely new generation of expressive, high-performance player—Mitchell Guitars' instruments stand at the intersection of precision and passion.

Included in its newly released line of electric guitars is the TD Series, offering traditional double-cutaway looks with spot-on rock and blues tones. With a versatile pickup configuration, the TD Series is at home in the studio or on weekend stages.

The Mitchell TD400 electric guitar features a traditional double-cutaway design with premium alder body, maple neck and rosewood fretboard. The pickup configuration includes one humbucker and two single-coil paraffin-dipped alnico V pickups that guard against microphonics and unwanted feedback.

The TD400 also features staggered-height tuners, which keep tension on the nut without the use of string trees, while the locking tuners provide great tuning stability. The ultra-carve heel joint allows access to the upper frets with ease. Add to these a pull-pot coil-tap, providing great single-coil sounds from the bridge-position humbucker, and a Wilkinson VS50-II tremolo with locking saddles, and you’ve got a great sounding, modern take on tradition. Before delivery to dealers, all Mitchell electric guitars receive a complete stateside setup and quality control inspection to ensure exceptional playability. Available in Black or Sunburst.
