TB500
The Mitchell TB500 bass starts with a custom contour alder body and one-piece, comfortable-profile maple neck with a smooth Indian rosewood fretboard. Standard split-single and single-coil paraffin-dipped alnico-V pickups go from blues to classic to modern rock, while mitigating microphonics and feedback. Separate volume controls for each pickup provide complete sound sculpting, along with a master tone for even more sonic options. The high-mass modern bridge ensures a robust tone, smooth sustain for days, and solid intonation.

Before delivery to our dealers, all Mitchell basses receive a complete stateside setup and quality control inspection to ensure exceptional playability. Available in Black with white pearloid pickguard (BK) or Transparent White Blonde with tortoise shell pickguard (TWB).
