OVERVIEW

Custom contour body, comfortable neck and great-sounding electronics.

The Mitchell TB500 bass starts with a custom contour alder body and a 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. 

All Mitchell basses receive a complete stateside setup and quality control inspection to ensure exceptional playability.

FEATURES
  • Alder body and maple neck with 20 medium frets for traditional tone and feel
  • Standard split-single and single-coil paraffin-dipped alnico V pickups go from blues to classic to modern rock while reducing microphonics and feedback
  • High-mass adjustable bridge provides plenty of solid tone and sustain
  • Graph Tech TUSQ XL reduced-friction nut enhances tuning stability
  • High-tensile strength fretwire for durability and smooth playability
