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.

        Plays Better than a 61 Silvertone

        By 

        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...

        Poor battery placement

        By 

        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.

        Beautiful Guitar!

        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!

        The MD 100CE

        By 

        from Miami, FL

        Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is well made and is comfortable but the action on the strings could be lowered. I have had it in the GS to have that done and they have not been very successful yet. Personally I thing the frets need to be leveled. I have to find out at my own expense. A lesson well learned.

        Mitchell Acoustic-Electric

        By 

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This is a great guitar for 200$, but the only problems I have with it are the features and quality. The EQs only have master, high, and low volumes. Also, the Battery goes dead really quick, and requires you to take ALL the strings off to replace. Putting new strings on the guitar is difficult to do without scratching the bridge.

        Good 'un

        By 

        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.

        Great Starter/Intermediate

        By 

        from Manalapan, NJ

        Comments about Mitchell MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I got this guitar about six months ago and it is well worth the $199 price tag. I couldn't get an electric guitar yet but I wanted something that could play like one, so the next best was an acoustic electric. Sounds great unplugged for the first few months but I'm noticing the sound quality drop slightly, but it's mostly because of string tarnishing. I didn't really plug it in until recently, and it sounds great. I really don't have much to compare it to, but it's good enough for a starter. You can tweak the preamp a bit but I just maxed everything out for a nice, heavy sound. You get a bit of fret buzz, but you can't even hear it if it's plugged in. This guitar is a great buy if you want both an acoustic and an electric guitar at the same time for a low price. You'll probably want to replace this guitar later on with an actual electric guitar, but it's a great buy for $199.
