I bought the MD-100CE recently because I needed a cutaway for leads and my Yamaha was killing my hands and didn't bend notes well. I tried Martins and Taylors, all great with gorgeous resonance and tone, but they hurt, and this was dirt cheap and -- while not a Martin or Gibson of couse -- sounded terrific. It was noticably better than its more expensive counterpart, the MD100SCE. I've been playing for 35 years, and I play or practice daily and perform regularly in small venues and at clubs and frequently lose feeling in my hands, so I need something that's easy to play and this fits the bill. It gets good and loud on those acoustic Zeppelin numbers and the high strings stand out in open chords. I can bend notes with ease way up on the neck. Bandmates commented on the low action. Long story short, this is a great deal on a cheap guitar. If you're a newbie or not, try one out, but play before you buy. Looks lie a few folks got a bad one, judging by the reviews. Mine is great. Just played it. Love it.
We'll see about tomorrow.

I've had some issues with this guitar. It was a guitar that sounded good for the first time I had it. I bought it on Black Friday. The first thing I noticed AFTER I bought it was that the frets felt absurd. They felt less like steel and more of some coarser metal. The strings would scratch at any attempt of bend, and wouldn't grip at all at anything higher than the 12th fret. The electronics sounded too bright and thin. At first it was easy to play, but the last week I had it, the action became really high, so I adjusted the truss rod, and it seems that one side of the truss rod was adjusting more than the other. The treble side was buzzing horribly after adjusting. Finally, the strings kept slipping from the bridge. After dealing with all of this, I took the guitar to my locally owned shop to repair. The man replaced the bridge and adjusted the truss rod, and said the guitar was not worth it to repair fully, and suggested I get a new guitar. That is exactly what I did. Do not buy this guitar, or anything with a brand that is not dependable. If you can, please shop locally.

Best Guitar for the Price, Must Buy for Anyone!

By OnaRoll

from Austin, Texas

Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I am new to the guitar and this is my first!! I wanted something that I could learn and stay with for a while!! I dont know much about choosing a guitar and only had so much to spend!! After reviewing guitars on line and with what i had to spend it was between The Ibanez V70 series and the Mitchell MD100CE both priced at $199. The Ibanez is a good guitar but After Picking up the Mitchell I was sold!! The guitar is very well built to, with a Spruce top and Mahogony Sides and back!! This guitar is Beautiful and plays well(with what i know). I will be keeping this guitar for a long time. This is a great guitar for Beginners and anyone! Go buy 1 you will not go wrong. Love It Long Time!!

Not too shabby...

By DSDub

from Chula Vista, CA

Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have to admit, I was a bit suprised when I played this guitar for the first time. It has a nice balanced sound, with a bit of midrange punch. The cutaway provides easier access to the higher frets, and the volume/EQ sliders are easy to read and adjust. The battery is difficult to change because of it's location. Also, I did have to replace the nut because of some buzz, but it plays and sounds great with a new bone nut! Great inexpensive guitar for the novice.

    Beautiful Guitar!

    By Gevin Sweeney

    from Wilmington, DE

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is very nice for it's price, and it sound beautiful! The only thing i don't like about this guitar is the electronics. I have to tune the guitar strings all the way down to be able to reach in the hole to replace the battery! But when I got that battery in there, it sound great on my amp!

    Plays Better than a 61 Silvertone

    By William Ehrlich

    from Anderson, IN

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I was going to buy a 1961 Silvertone Dreadnaught for $288.00. When I received the guitar case I bought from guitar center for $49.00, I decided to buy The Mitchell Acoustic Electric Guitar for $199.99. The Mitchell Guitar played better than the antique Silvertone. The Silvertone was manufactured in The USA. Craftsman In China. Who Cares...

    By Jamie 1960

    from Southaven, MS

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have played for many years _ Clubbing & Hotel gigs / idle for a while / bought this while actually shopping for an Ovation or Yamaha. It was clearly the better guitar in that price range. tones are crisp / sounds great through live sound system. Usually play solid body electric, needed elec/acoustic for live church group, walked by it several times before trying it out & I am glad I did. BUY IT NOW

    Wow!

    By nevertooold2play

    from NJ

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I went to GC with $320 to spend on a Acoustic-Electric, and I was disappointed with the Yamaha and Ibanez models. The sales rep pointed me to this guitar, and I was completely blown away by the sound! When I found out it was $200, I was amazaed. It comes with D'Addario strings so that helps, but I am so happy I picked this guitar up. Even though they had new ones, I went with the floor model. The finish on it is very nice as well. Try this guitar out!

    Worth much more than the price

    By La Sfida

    from Chicago

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The strings are quality D'Addarios, the fingerboard is smooth rosewood, the guitar sounds bright and crystalline. The projection is excellent. I actually picked up an Epiphone acoustic electric but the salesman told me to try the Mitchell out because it has a cutaway and onboard equalizer control, which was not featured on the Epi. I tried it on an acoustic amp and it sounded great. It's also great unamplified. It is made in Indonesia by Japanese craftsmen. The handcrafted quality is quite evident.

    body lost its neck

    By seth

    from chandler, az

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I got this guitar as a gift from my ex in Ap of 2006. The guitar is a good price, however it wasnt shortly after, (and by shortly, i mean no more than a couple weeks) i noticed the neck start to seperate from the body. i took it back to the store and they recomend that i take it to a guitar shop to have it fixed. the guitar shop said it was fine, and there was no way to fix it... just recently i noticed the gap between the neck and body seperate even more, and there is a gap between the glue and laminate to the body, and it cracks... i could stick the tip of a pencil between it... buy something more worth the money!

    Good 'un

    By Michael and Mann Bros. Productions

    from Salem ,IL

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought a Mitchell about six months ago and it has become my favorite. I have abused this guitar and it has held up quite well. I recommend it for a beginner who needs a good acoustic. I like the electrics but I do have the battery slippin out of its holder if im too rough and I wish you could have easier access to change the battery like some of the other guitars. The electrics sound really nice and its a great guitar for country music and a little southern rock. It may not be a famous name but its well worth the price tag. Rock on.

    Poor battery placement

    By TERRY HOFFMAN

    from Albert, Kansas

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This really is a fairly decent guitar but, whoever designed where the battery is placed is either not a musician or an idiot. I've seen cheaper guitars that have better design than this. Actually 4 stars is being kind, if the guitar was more inferior quality I'd have rated it way lower.

    Great sound for a guitar ...

    By YoungK83

    from Annandale, VA

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Great sound for a guitar its price. Some troubles are changing batteries because the only way to the battery is through the sound hole, and the neck bends more easily than regular if not taken care of well. Other than that it is a very good beginners guitar.

    Great Beginner's Acoustic

    By Misconduct2K

    from San Diego, CA

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    If you're a beginner looking for a great acoustic, or even an experienced player looking for a decent second guitar, this Mitchell is for you. This guitar projects well, and has nice midrange definition. It could use a bit more sparkle in the highs, but overall this acoustic has a nice sound. The neck does tend to bend a bit, but regular setups should keep that in check. Make sure to invest in a case and a decent soundhole humidifier, and you will enjoy this guitar for years to come.

    Picture doesn't do it justice... it's BEAUTIFUL

    By wolfman1012

    from Newark, OH

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Don't let the price tag fool you. This is a quality guitar. Sounds great and looks awesome! Solid-top AE for great price! This guitar is better than any Epiphones, Deans, el cheapo guitars and as good as any Fender I've played. Good tone, low action, decent electronics... sound is very good. It played perfect (other than tuning of course) straight out of the box. Sweet guitar! You can't go wrong here. Try it for yourself!

    Beautiful for Beginners!

    By BernaDiva

    from San Francisco, CA

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I just bought this guitar because I'd been wanting an acoustic-electric but didn't want to spend $300+ since I'm still learning. I tried it at the store and LOVED the sound compared to a couple of other acoustics I tried out. Most acoustic-electrics can be quite expensive and this one fit my budget. I like how the neck is slender enough that I can bar chords pretty easily. Also, this guitar has a nice spruce top instead of a plywood one (common among cheaper guitars).

    Great Guitar

    By Sportsdude78

    from MD

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar as a sort of beginner with several months of experience. I previously owned a Yamaha accoustic but this is so much better. This guitar is great for the price, sounds beautifully and i recomend it 100% for beginners and people with a year of experience. It is also a great travel guitar. Dont be fooled by the prce, as many say, it is a quality guitar.

    Great Guitar

    By Ampman1

    from Orlando, FL

    Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Just bought this guitar. Played one 2 years ago and was impressed. I have played for many years and I know what I want in a guitar. I played 8 other guitars along with this one; Ibanez, Yamaha, Takamine, blew them away. One either sounded good electronically put not acoustically or vice versa. I wanted a guitar that not only would sound good acoustically but electrically too. This one did. Very nice neck and very good action, no buzzes or bad workmanship. If you have a chance check one out you won't be disappointed. Buy it!!!!!
