Description

The Mitchell MS450 Modern single-cutaway electric guitar is the ideal instrument for the advanced and/or advancing guitarist who wants to fill out their collection with a top-quality, feature-rich guitar for practice, rehearsals and gigging. They feature a thin profile, single cutaway design, mahogany body with flamed maple tops, and an easy-playing shallow-C mahogany set neck design. A unique heel joint provides supreme playing comfort and upper fret access. The MS450 Series includes high-output, 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. Includes premium D'Addario EXL120 .009–.42 strings.

The MS450 Series is available in eight gorgeous finishes: Sunset Burst (SSB), Trans Black (BK), Aqua Burst (AB), Forest Green (FG), Honeyburst (HB), Trans Purple (TR) and Gold Metallic (GM). 

Before delivery to our dealers, all Mitchell electric guitars receive a complete stateside setup and quality control inspection to ensure exceptional playability.
