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. The MS450's unique heel joint provides supreme playing comfort and upper-fret access. The MS450 Modern also 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. The MS450 Modern comes equipped with 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).  All Mitchell electric guitars receive a complete stateside setup and quality control inspection to ensure exceptional playability.
