Mitchell guitars made their big debut in 1986, and they've been a popular choice for guitarists ever since. The Mitchell formula is a simple one: make well-built guitars with a price tag that fits into anyone's budget. If you're a student looking for your first instrument or a hobbyist in search of an affordable option, then Mitchell definitely has your number. In this section you'll find some fantastic guitars ready to handle the demands of daily practice, as well as a range of starter packs that come with everything you need to get going from scratch.
The most widely-represented style of guitar in Mitchell's lineup is the dreadnought. Thanks to their large sound chambers, these instruments have a sound that's naturally loud and bold, which makes it easy to hear the details in their tone. You'll find a few versions here, like the MD100 and MDJ10 with their traditional dreadnought body shapes. Other models, like the MD200SCE, feature a cutaway body which makes it easy to reach the closest few frets, giving you the greatest possible range when you play.
If you're looking for a guitar to take to the studio or orchestra, you should also consider the classical body style. Check out the MO100S or the MX400 for starters. Another model that comes well-recommended for traditional performances is the Mitchell Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar, which has an onboard pickup and preamp. That allows you to connect an acoustic guitar amplifier to get way more volume than what's possible with acoustic sound alone. Are you an aspiring folk musician? Take a look at the MO100SPK Folk Acoustic Guitar Pack - with a strap, DVD guide, tuner, gig bag, picks and extra strings all bundled in, it's everything you need to get your career underway.
No matter which of these Mitchell guitars turns out to be the right one for you, you'll be getting amazing bang for your buck. That's what Mitchell does best, after all, and the proof is right here in this selection of instruments that look and sound great, are built to last, and easily fit into a shoestring budget. It's a hard combination to pull off, but Mitchell has really nailed it.
