With today?s guitar market so widespread in variety and price range I could not find my guitar for weeks, I couldn?t make up my mind. Do I want an expensive guitar or something in the middle of the road? I was going to get an expensive guitar until I grasped my fingers on the fretboard of a Mitchell MD100 and seconds later I said ?ill take it?. The sound is solid and the guitar is light in weight which I like and it looks really nice for the price. I enjoy playing the Mitchell guitar every day, it sounds like a really expensive guitar, but it is only a fraction of the price! My neighbor liked it so much and the price he went out and bought one too. What do you have to lose its inexpensive easy to play sounds great and is only a fraction of the cost compared to other guitars. The Mitchell is really good for beginner players and I recommend it for every one!

I got my Mitchell MD100 so that I could have an acoustic to take lessons with. The tone is ok, but the action was very high, and Barre Chords were almost impossible to play. I'm now an intermediate level player, and I should have gotten a different acoustic as my starter. I filed the nut slots and shaved the saddle to make it more playable which made it a little better, but now when I pick up higher end guitars at the store to play on it's easy to see why Martins and Taylors are worth more. I suppose it's for the person that doesn't know if they will stick to guitar. It also has a place as a guitar you don't have to worry about when you go camping. Yes acoustics are harder to play than electrics, but this Mitchell is harder to play than most other Acoustics. Buy it only as a beater.

    Comments about Mitchell MD100 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    This is by far the most guitar you can get for the money. If you are starting out and you are on a budget this is the guitar to consider. It plays like a high end guitar and souds nice and crisp with a nice low end as well.
    The Build quality and over all details, I give it a 5 stars for what it is.

    Comments about Mitchell MD100 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    If you want a guitar but you don't want to spend your whole paycheck this is an excellent choice. You are not paying for a high end guitar so you will not get a high end guitar. For a beginner what you do get is a cheap way to open up the door to see if you really want to continue playing the guitar. If you absolutely love it and you keep improving you will more than likely want to get a better guitar. And after learning on this guitar, you will really respect the sound you get with a better guitar.

      Comments about Mitchell MD100 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      Bought this guitar on sale at GC really cheap.. First off, it looks great. And for the price I paid, it would be worth it just as a wall decoration. The tone was really nice too. Not as crisp as a solid spruce top, but nice. Of the 4 that were on the floor that day, I picked the one with the best action. Still not that good. The nut slots were too shallow and the bridge was way too high. Also I noticed that the finger board where it met the body angled a bit. Something a truss rod adjustment wouldn't cure. But still sounded nice, although an effort to play and the frets were scratchy.. Set-up on this was not real good. I still give it 4 stars because the woodwork, finish and tuners were of good quality. I've worked on guitars longer than I wish to admit, so I knew when I bought it some work needed to be done. If you can work on or know someone who can, that is a big plus. First I leveled the frets, crowned them and put a nice glassy finish on them. Cut the nut grooves deeper, added a new bridge and got the height down. I prefer lighter gauge strings for ease of playing. So even with these it still produces a nice full sound. Ive got the action at the 12th fret down to .085" clearance on the low E and and .070" on the high E without any fret buzz. I consider that pretty good. I'm used to playing electric guitars so I almost have to have a low action. You have to remember this isn't a Taylor, Gibson or Martin, and if you expect it to be as nice at 1/10th the price or less, you'll be disappointed. Even if you have to pay for the fretwork etc. it's still a bargain. This would be a great starter guitar, and in time if you want to upgrade, it would be a great guitar for live stage, recording or whatever. I love mine now, and it's probably one of my most often played guitars for just plunking around on. Good luck, have fun.

      Comments about Mitchell MD100 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I had a limited budget and needed a guitar to keep with me at all times for practice. I was specifically looking for a laminated top guitar because i was willing to settle for a boxy or tinny tone if the guitar sounded good and looked good. The Mitchell sounded and looked better than other guitars in the same price point. The treble end is very bright yet it still projects huge volume, the fret board very accurate. Truss rod adjustments and set up were done at Fairfax Virginia location of Guitar Center. After completely wearing out 2 sets of strings I noticed some fret wear. Guitar Center demo R&R using Fret Board Conditioner and steel wool. My main gripe is the nut and bridge are sub par for the rest of the guitar, and I prefer a better grade of rosewood but with TLC it seems to be better now.

        The guitar itself looks and sounds pretty awesome considering how cheap the price was! Plays and sounds better than my fender dreadnought. And has nicer features like abalone. This is a perfect guitar for a beginner or someone who's been playing for years like myself. The only issue I've had which I've read in other reviews is the strings. I had a string snap 30 minutes after I tuned it up but that's no big deal I was going to put some on anyways.

          Picked up on a scratch and dent sale. When it was delivered, I couldn't find any, but it suffered from bad fret buzz. Basically, the stock (cheap) plastic nut and bridge was too soft and the strings were cutting into them causing the string problems. Replaced to a bone nut and bridge and what a difference. Not just in playability, but in sound quality also. Now it's a nice, easy to play acoustic with great sound. Highly recommend this guitar in conjunction with upgrading the nut and bridge.
