See All Mitchell Solid Body Electric Guitars

Super comfortable design with fast-playing neck and versatile electronics.

The Mitchell MS400 electric guitar features a thin profile, single cutaway, mahogany body and an easy-playing shallow-C mahogany set neck design. A unique heel joint provides supreme playing comfort and upper fret access. Includes dual humbucking paraffin-dipped alnico V pickups that reduce microphonics and unwanted feedback. Separate volume controls for each pickup let you blend as needed, while a pull coil-tap allows you 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 our dealers, all Mitchell electric guitars receive a complete stateside setup and quality control inspection to ensure exceptional playability. Available in Black (BK), or Honeyburst with AAA quilt maple veneer top (QHB). Case sold separately.

Comments about Mitchell MS400 Thinline Single-Cutaway Electric Guitar:

Read a lot of great reviews about this guitar, and at this low price I decided to make this an early Christmas present. I was surprised at how playable this guitar is and how great it was set up right out of the box. I got one of the last black ones that was in stock. I just might have to buy one of the sunburst models when they are back in stock! Fantastic bargain for such a high quality guitar!

Comments about Mitchell MS400 Thinline Single-Cutaway Electric Guitar:

This guitar was set up just perfect for me right out of the box. The intonation was perfect. I have had many guitars and this was the first time that I didn't have to do at least some set-up. The guitar is fairly light and looks great (honeyburst model). It has a good sound for the money and is a great buy for the price. This guitar, in my opinion is equal to some big brand more expensive guitars.

Great guitar for the price!

Comments about Mitchell MS400 Thinline Single-Cutaway Electric Guitar:

I ordered the Honey Burst color. Phenomonal guitar out of the box. Beautiful!. Very well made. It is approximately the same weight as my ESP EC 1000 and definitely lighter the my Gibson Studio. Neck and action are great. The pick ups were ok. Not the greatest sound out of them. Upgraded them with a Seymour Duncan 59 in the neck and a Dimebucker in the bridge, and now it is a wrecking machine.

Great value for the money spent. Didn't want to drop thousands for a honey burst quilt top from GIbson. This guitar gets the job done at a great price.

    Comments about Mitchell MS400 Thinline Single-Cutaway Electric Guitar:

    First off this is a very nice guitar for the price. It comes loaded with some very nice features as well. Locking tuners seem well built and do a nice job of keeping in tune. Silicon nut to reduce friction, string-thru body, coil taps offer more sonic variance, great sounding pickups for being stock. Doesn't have as much low end as a Gibson LP. The bridge pickup is very hot sounding while the neck pickup is somewhere in between hot and cool. With the coil tap in the middle position you can get a very nice clean single coil tone. Although this guitar is made in China I have to give it to Mitchell guitars for coming up with such a high quality instrument at an affordable price. The construction seems very good and it looks very pretty. The finish isn't as vibrant as some other high quality instruments but it definitely does the job!
