Overview

The Mitchell HD400 electric guitar starts with a resonant, double cutaway, basswood body and a thin “C” shape maple neck with either a maple or rosewood fretboard, providing the perfect platform for lead guitar pyrotechnics. The high-output humbucker/single-coil/humbucker configuration features paraffin-dipped ceramic pickups to reduce microphonics and unwanted feedback. And to help you create superior sonic gymnastics with solid tuning stability, the HD400 comes with a licensed Floyd Rose double locking floating tremolo. Plus, its wide/tall jumbo frets make bending and legato phrasing a breeze.

All Mitchell electric guitars receive a complete stateside setup and quality control inspection to ensure exceptional playability. Available with Black (BK) or Transparent Red (TR) with rosewood fretboard, or step up to Lime Green Metallic with maple fretboard (MLG) or optional Ocean Blue with AAA quilt maple veneer top with maple fretboard (MQOB). Case sold separately.

    i got this guitar a few days ago when they came out and at first i was a lido skeptical on getting it because i never heard of the brand but i gave it a shot. i played it for a good while on different amps. i was really impressed with the guitar its specs are very similar to a jem guitar just without the monkey grab. very smooth and great feel. overall i nice guitar for a new gen of mitchell guitars. really really impressed. one of my top guitars now

    Excellent guitar for the money

    By Kevin

    from New Hampshire

    Comments about Mitchell HD400 Hard Rock Double Cutaway Electric Guitar:

    Guitar exceeded my expectations for playability and workmanship, stock pick ups sounded pretty decent but I replaced them with seymour Duncan JB , jazz and a Duncan designed single coil I had on hand. Easily has become one of if not my favorite guitar . The unfinished maple neck combined with the super jumbo frets feels amazing , the only thing wrong with my guitar was the tone pot was defective and was shorting out, wired in a new pot and pickups and it simply shreds, you'd be hard pressed to find a better guitar for the money.

    Comments about Mitchell HD400 Hard Rock Double Cutaway Electric Guitar:

    I am a beginner guitar player and what can I say, not much since I'm new. From the begening when I first saw this guitar I fell I love. You don't have to be a professional guitarist to admire the beautiful of it. This Mitchell guitar is prefect for beginners. I wanted a really good guitar to practice on. I didn't want a cheap nor a really expensive guitar (I already have a really expensive guitar lol) I wanted a go to guitar and off the back this HD400 meets all my expectations. C shape neck helps you get around the entire fretboard. The Floyd Rose tremolo was a bit hard to get it into tone (again I'm a beginner) but with a few videos and some patients you'll have it in tone in no time. I would definitely recommend this guitar to anyone. The style feel the sound makes it all worth the money.

        Great base guitar to mode into a sleeper

        Comments about Mitchell HD400 Hard Rock Double Cutaway Electric Guitar:

        I really like everything from looks to the unplugged sound. But, when I'm plugged in, kept cutting out on the high e near the bridge. The pickups appear to be generic as in, not setup for the F spacing despite the replica Floyd Rose. Picked up some replacements, switches and pots. I'll replace everything, including the wiring and see if that fixes the problem.

        If anything, the furniture is great, and the setup seems to be spot on, neck is good as in the spacing is from the 1st fret to the 22nd is nice and tight with no apparent buzzing.

        Comments about Mitchell HD400 Hard Rock Double Cutaway Electric Guitar:

        I use this guitar to practice, as well as write original music. As a metal musician, accessibility to the 24th fret is detrimental; and while searching for a new guitar, I wanted to eliminate the issue of having to stretch so much just to reach it. Originally I was going to grab a Sterling by Music Man JP60, but decided to research a little to see what other guitars offered the same feature; and that's when this beauty popped up. Is the budget Music Man better? Probably. In no way am I regretful for purchasing this Mitchel HD400, though. When holding it for the first time, and feeling it out, this guitar felt marvelous - it's, frankly, one of the most enjoyable 6 strings to play that I've ever picked up. The only downside to this guitar is that it's very shallow around the 24th fret on the high E string. Whether it be tapping, or just playing in general, it's very dull and dies out quite quickly; so you have to try to be as precise as possible, with your fingering, to be able to get a clear note from it. Aside from that, everything exceeded expectations. I am very satisfied with the purchase.

        Fantastic bang for the buck!

        Comments about Mitchell HD400 Hard Rock Double Cutaway Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is well worth the money. One can play jazz, rock and blues on it with the right settings.
        I gave it four stars rather than five due to when I put the amp in crunch mode through my Mesa Boogie I get interference sound due to the pickups or possibly wiring not being shielded? I haven't figured that out yet. It may only be on my end and not the fault of the guitar. But I have other high-end electric guitars which do not have this problem. Maybe I need to put in shielding. I'd be curious what others have done for this.
        The neck is really nice to barre chord on and riff. It really is a very nice neck with the right size of frets.
        Usually, with a Floyd Rose, there is a problem when bending strings. On mine, this is not a problem.
        Seriously, if you are looking for a great, inexpensive guitar, you should definitely check this out. I purchased mine from Guitar Center online. I was not paid to post a review.
