  • Over Looked Performer

    As reviewed by bulldog on 8/15/2011

    I was in messing around at the local GC for my birthday and they didn't have the Martin I was hoping to test drive for future reference. I played several of the regulars and then I saw a tobacco burst Mitchell that caught my eye. I've heard about these instruments and read several adds for them but had never tried one on for size, so I thought what the hey. OMG!! This instrument was AWSOME! Now I own several Martins, a Taylor and a nice little Alverez and have been through a ton of guitars over the last 40+ years of picking. One of the best guitars I'd ever owned was a Lotus which was a Chinese knock off of the Gibson Hummingbird in the mid 70's(Thats a whole different story). This Mitchell blew me away as it fell right into that category. Beautiful fit and finish. From what I can see, good solid construction and good bracing. Frets are a little thicker than I like but not unbearable. She frets very well and the neck is actually rather fast. It is comfortable to fret up and down and with proper strings on it and a small investment for a proper set up that even the big name axes often need when new this beast is just unbelievable. It is a full size dreadnaught and isn't a small guitar at all, so if you're looking for a ooo sized or parlor guitar this is not it. The sound is in a word, Beautiful. Nice bass and bottom end that has plenty of boom and sustain as a dreadnaught is expected to have. Mid Range and Treble are sweet and full with a lot of well balanced sustain that you can fully feel expressing itself through the back and belly of this nice axe. It adapts very well to finger picking and if you want to use a pick and drive this guitar hard it seems to eat it up with gusto. A mean machine for blue grass pickers for sure. I agree with a previous reviewer, this is not a Martin or a Taylor and it isn't trying to be and it isn't supposed to be. It is a Mitchell and a well recieved instrument from what I can tell from the short time I've now owned one and been banging it nearly every day along with my ooo Martin. Lifetime warranty to the original owner, quality looks, construction and design. Very playable, awsome sound, projection and sustain. Well under $500... what the devil isn't to like? Why does an instrument need to have Gibson, Martin, Taylor, etc stamped on it and cost more than most of us make in a month in order to be judged as good or worthy of owning one? Sorry folks, life is just too short. I'm no guitar snob. If it's good then that's that and these Mitchells are good little guitars. Would I play one on the road or the stage? You bet. Try one out yourself and make up your own mind, but I'm betting that when you do you will be as amazed as I was. These seem to be strung with mediums so they will be stiff for most folks at first. I'll stick to my lights thank you. Just try one and enjoy it. For the price you will be awed if you're a begining player or an old hand.

  • I would have rated it 5 stars for a starter but...

    As reviewed by Ben Baden on 2/17/2011

    This was my first acoustic guitar, and it's decent. :) And not bad quality at all, and I was definitely satisfied with it. :) The one I got didn't have any unwanted twang or anything and it was worth for what I bought it for :). I would have rated it 5 stars for a starter but...I recommended this guitar to a friend, and she went out, bought it, and then came back and the quality was awful....she returned it and I told her to tell the guy to tune it for her, and came back with another one that was just as bad...I thought that once he'd hear what it sounded like he'd suggest to give her a different one, but I was wrong :/. I went with her the next time to buy a different model, and she just spent a little more cash to buy one that sounded much better. If you're going to try to buy this, bring someone with you that knows what a good acoustic should sound like, NOT THE GUITAR CENTER EMPLOYERS :(. As for quality of mine, it's reliable :), I've hit it a few times by accident and it's fine. The tuners worked great when I first bought the guitar, as long as I played it daily it stayed in tune, but now I have to tune it a lot more often (6 months in to playing it). It's light and it's great for playing almost any genre...not really rock...get an electric for that ;). It still looks almost like new besides the pick guard. :) The one have definitely met my expectations :)

  • VG beginner guitar needs some attention.

    As reviewed by William Szabo on 6/26/2012

    I bought this guitar as a campfire guitar to keep my Taylor from getting ruined. This is a good guitar but with a bit of attention can be a very good guitar. As with most chinese guitars, they give you the basics, it's the finishing touches that they cheap out on. So whenever I get a new guitar I go through it with a fine tooth comb. I'll give you my findings from the one I received. I was surprised with how well its built considering its price tag Its not a Martin or Taylor but its not a Rogue either. The finish is nice and even with no runs, frets were a slight bit sharp, the tuning machines were a bit loose in their bushings but hold tune pretty well. I'm not happy with the bridge/saddle arrangement. The string angle on the saddle from the bridge pins isn't relieved so the strings dig into the saddle (a bit of filing can fix this but if not attended to can shorten its lifespan.) The strings were already rusting upon arrival yet the guitar arrived very dry, it needs to be put in a case with a humidifier or at least a bag and the box it came in. The fretboard was almost tan it was so dry, after 2 applications of fretboard conditioner (lemon oil) it darkened right up. Frets are small and level but a little rough on the edges. I cleaned these up carefully with a file. (Is this absolutely necessary? not for beginners, It wasn't bad and it was definitely playable, I have the tools so I cleaned it up.) The nut and saddle on this guitar are cheap plastic. I played it for an hour or so before working on it and the nut was already fraying. I had an extra Tusq nut from an epi les paul that fit, so I replaced it. I'm ordering a new saddle too. After restringing with Martin strings and adjusting the truss rod for lower action, (no string buzz) this is a very nice sounding guitar. It's brighter than my Taylor 214 but not in a bad way. After the work I've done I'm pretty happy with it. As a beginner guitar, I'd recommend it over a "Rogue" acoustic any day. (had one and returned it, sounded tinny and had a horrible finish on it.)It's on par with the Takamine Jasmine. It is playable right out of the box. If you take it for a setup and put good strings on it, (Martin, Elixir, etc.) it improves instantly. The nice thing is it can be made to sound really good with just a little bit of work. By comparison, the Rogue I received was an instant return. The Mitchell is a keeper.
