Mitchell FB700 Series Brings Bass to the Fore

Thousand Oaks, CA – December 2016…

Mitchell’s totally reimagined line of high-performance electric guitars and basses has been turning heads and making waves, and their FB700 Series is a radical new take on bass that will get the attention of serious bassists everywhere. The FB700 features an offset double-cutaway body made of rich carved mahogany, topped with an eye-catching, precision-sculpted AAA quilt maple veneer for a striking but elegant modern look and feel.

The FB700 is fitted with a smooth 5-piece maple/rosewood neck with rosewood fretboard for ultimate playability and comfort. It also features a Graph Tech™ TUSQ XL reduced-friction nut for rock-solid tuning stability. Dual premium MB4 paraffin-dipped alnico V humbucking pickups deliver smooth, well rounded tone and even output while reducing microphonics and feedback, and the active preamp circuitry gives you three bands of wide-ranging tonal control, with a pickup blend control knob for even deeper sound sculpting options.

High-tensile strength fretwire, die-cast high-ratio tuning machines, a high-mass adjustable bridge, and sleek black nickel hardware add to the FB700’s premium look and feel, making it the one go-to bass for versatile players in rock, metal, country, jazz, blues, or whatever music you’re playing today.

“Today’s bassist is doing more than just holding down the bottom end,” observes Mitchell Product Manager Rick Gagliano. “Bass players are stepping forward as a melodic, driving part of the music, and we’re giving them the tools they need to stand out and be heard. The FB700 is a powerful, versatile instrument in a modern design that will shine on any stage.”

The FB700 is available in Natural or Transparent Black quilted maple finishes, and comes in 4, 5, and 6-string models. U.S. street prices range from $699.99 to $799.99.

Mitchell MS400 Series Offers a Modern Twist on Single-Cutaway Design

Thousand Oaks, CA – November 2016…

An outstanding choice for rock, metal, blues, and jazz, Mitchell’s MS400 single-cutaway electric guitar employs a classic design with a modern twist. Part of Mitchell’s newly reimagined line of high-performance electric guitars, the MS400 is a fresh take on the single-cutaway guitar, with a slim-tapered, set neck profile and adjustable TOM-style bridge. Its Deep Bevel Cutaway (DBC) design allows complete fretboard access.

The MS400 delivers fat, meaty tones, thanks to dual Alnico V humbucker pickups with separate volume controls and a three-position pickup switch. A pull coil-tap tone pot allows you to split either humbucker into a single-coil. The string-through body design increases sustain even further, and high-ratio locking tuning machines and a Graph Tech™ TUSQ XL™ reduced-friction nut make precision tuning easy.

The MS400’s thin-profile, carved mahogany body mates with a one-piece, shallow “C” profile, slim-taper, mahogany set neck and 22-fret, Indian rosewood fretboard to create a guitar that feels comfortable in any player’s hands. A back-angled output jack helps avert accidental unplugging. Add flame maple body binding and neck binding, a body-matching gloss neck finish, and nickel hardware, and you have a serious attention-getter that looks as great as it plays and sounds.

“With the MS400, we’ve gone all out to create a truly premium guitar that also is an exceptional value,” asserts Mitchell Product Manager Rick Gagliano. “We paid close attention to design, insisted on superior materials and construction quality, and focused especially on playability and tone. The result is a powerful-sounding instrument that is effortless to play, so your musical passion flows freely through your fingers. You can feel the difference.”

Mitchell MS400 electric guitars are available in a high-gloss black finish or in honeyburst with AAA quilt maple veneer top. U.S. street prices range from $399.99 to $449.99.
