The Mitchell MS470 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. The MS470's unique heel joint provides supreme playing comfort and upper-fret access. 
The MS470 also includes high-output, dual-humbucking paraffin-dipped Alnico V pickups that reduce microphonics and unwanted feedback. Separate volume controls each featuring pull-coil tap functions allow you to split either humbucking pickup into a single coil with master tone control. High-ratio locking tuners provide precise tuning, while the jumbo frets and TOM-style bridge offer increased sustain and bite. The MS470 comes equipped with premium D'Addario EXL120 .009–.42 strings. 
The MS470 Series is available in eight gorgeous finishes: Widow Black Burst (WBB), Denim Blue Burst (DBB), Beach Burst Blue (BBB), October Burst (OB), Black Cherry Burst (BCB), Bengal Burst (BB) and Citron Burst (CB).  
Restocks are instruments that may have minor cosmetic blemishes that do not affect the way they play or sound. It’s a unique opportunity to acquire an outstanding guitar at a super low price for an extremely limited time.
