I tried a couple of these in the Guitar Center and for the price they are amazing value. I have played the guitar over 30 years on and off, everything from cheap acoustics to custom Gibsons. If you need a great beginner instrument or just a cheaper guitar to drag to the beach, cabin or wherever, this is the one.... and you will still have great sound and playability. As with all acoustics, probably better to 'try' before 'buy' due to variations between each unit produced (this advice goes for high dollar guitars too), but it seems that Mitchell have pretty good quality control.

I brought my guitar in to see if it could be repaired( bowing neck) I twould have cost more to repair than it was worth. I looked around the center and checked out everything in my price range 150- 250, I really liked the action I was so suprised the neck felt great and the sound was pretty good too. I played it that night and found that the low e buzzed or rattled around the 8th fret. I returned it and the replacement is perfect . Overall a good guitar for a great price.

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I bought my Mitchell MD100s at Guitar Center in Greensboro, N.C., after debate on a new guitar, and staying in budget, the salesperson showed me this fine piece. I played it and was really impressed. A friend of mine in West Virginia, where I now reside, introduced me to his cousin who is a luthier, and he put the final touches on it. I have played expensive guitars, great guitars, and very overpriced and overrated guitars, and played several that have left a lot to be desired, but my Mitchell is great, and with the solid spruce top, the sound gets better with age. I have had mine going on 7 years and it still sounds and plays great. For those with questions about this guitar, go for it. You will not be disappointed.

    Really Worth It

    By Jerry

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I'm a rank beginner, but after quite a bit of shopping, listening and playing a lot of guitars in the $100-350 range, this is my favorite. It sounds and plays better than the more expensive Yamahas that many consider the standard for beginner guitars. I even liked it better than a Seagull that cost twice as much. The only thing that felt played and sounded significantly better was a Martin that cost 7x as much. The action is great, and the finish is perfect. I've looked all over and don't see one blemish. This really is a great guitar for the money. I think you can find worse guitars for a whole lot more money.

    I'm an absolute beginner - but wow!

    By Matthew

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I never write reviews, but I now have 2 months playing guitar, and I absolutely love this guitar. I went in, and the GC employee that helped me merely said pick the one that sounds the best to you. Not knowing even how to play a single chord, he showed me how to play E minor, and off we went. Just for fun I tried higher end models like Martin & Taylor down to cheaper brands. But to my untrained ear this guitar sounded really good at this really good price. I was initially skeptical because of the brand, and I considered some more expensive models in the $200-400 range, but this one really sounded the best to me over those more expensive models. Now that I can play a few chords, I've been back and I can the tell you that those other entry level guitars at the $200-$300 range aren't worth the extra $100. I really scored at this price for this quality (dumb luck), and I have no regrets at all. As a guitar that's just used for yourself and your own enjoyment that you can beat up while you learn, it doesn't get any better than this!

    The Best Guitar Under $800.00!

    By Rick Gaboury

    from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    After reading so many positive reviews about this guitar, I decided to take the risk and order one. I have been playing for over 40 years and I have owned and traded many acoustic guitars from Gibson, Martin, Taylor, Epiphone and many others. This guitar it simply the best sounding, playing and looking guitar I have ever owned. I am still shocked - these guys have clearly hit a home run! You would think I paid over $1,000.00 for this guitar. The fit and finish is exception - even the construction inside the guitar is the cleanest and most professional I have seen. Too bad the strings that came with it are nasty - I put on a new set of Epiphone Masterbuilt lights and it sounds fantastic! Shopping online with Guitar Center is a great experience as well?.

    Great Guitar

    By James Hunter

    from Bartlesville, Ok

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I bought this guitar in May of 09 as a cheap one to tote around and not care if a friend stomped a hole in it. Once I got to really playing it I realized just how great this guitar sounds. Yeah there are better guitars but not for this money. Mine still sounds great and looks great minus a few blemishes I caused. For a learner or an accomplished musician this guitar wont disappoint. Holds tune and doesnt have that cheap guitar sound. I recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a good guitar with a limited budget. You will rarely find a guitar of this quality for this price.

    Wish I could give it a 6 star

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    Never before had I loved this guitar as I do know. I went to the guitar center considering upgrading to a new guitar, was considering a Yamaha FG700S... I thought it is a better brand, blah blah... Tried it first. It looked and sounded like a toy to me. Much lighter and the material it's made of, that nato back and sides, it did look very cheap creating the impression it has a smaller body. Tried a few other guitars in an up to $600 range, none of them sounded even a bit like the mitchell md100s. I thought at that time my guitar does not deserve such a betrayal. I am keeping it. And I actually love it even more now. And even if I do go for a new guitar, it will still be a Mitchell.

    My guitar

    By Darren Davison

    from Huntington Beach CA

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I've had one for a couple years now and I have to say it's pretty nice. It stays tuned, looks great, and has a nice sound. I've shown it to more experienced players and they always say, "Mitchell? Never heard of it?" like they wonder why. They always follow with, "But it sounds great!" This guitar sounds like it's retail price would suggest and at 50% off it's a really good deal. I almost bought something cheaper but a Guitar Center customer saw me bummed out while looking at a cheapy and steered me toward a better guitar. Thank you nameless guitar dude! And thank you Guitar Center for being so much more than just another music shop.

    Very Nice Acoustic

    By STEVE MCCARTY

    from Lawrence KS

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    Not sure I need to add yet another review as there are many others who voice a similar opinion giving this Mitchell acoustic guitar a very good rating. For the good; it is finished very nicely & it has a very good sound. My only notice to the product is the fret edges should have been smoothed out as others have mentioned. The frets (at least on mine), are noticably rough as you contact/slide by them with your hand. That's my reason for a 4 star rating. The Javanese (yes the label says Javanese), craftsman should have better-finished the fret ends, not leaving it up to me to more-than-likely scratch the neck binding should I ever attempt repairs. So, for now I'll just not do anything about them as I don't want to pay more to have the fret ends smoothed out at this time. Other than that I like the guitar. Some folks say they don't care for the guitar's new smell, but to me it's like a new car/guitar smell, which I like. Never have bought a new car however. And, totally off the subject, but do you ever wonder how many guitars have been made since oh, (pick a decade), 1940 or so? Both acoustic and electric? It must be several gazillion. And every year new models arrive and the cycle continues. Hey, I've got a couple electric and acoustic's now, that might register as a very small percentage...Thanks for reading.

    Wow

    By Sam Schmitt

    from Dallas, TX

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I was going on a trip and had to play guitar on a beach so I needed a pretty cheap one that I wouldn't mind getting sand on. I got this guitar on sale and I was so surprised. It sounds amazing for the price and looks pretty nice too. This is a great guitar and I recommend it to any guitar player that wants a decent acoustic guitar. Sure there are better acoustics out there but for the price, this one is the best.

    nice guitar, but rough

    By Dave Cubbedge

    from Toledo, OH

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    My friend wanted an entry level guitar and we chose this one after playing every guitar under $200 in the store. The example on the shelf played better than the Yamaha, Fender or Epiphone in this price range and also had better tone. They brought it out in the box and we took it home. Upon tuning it for the first time, there were major action issues - the wound strings were buzzing everywhere. Also, when just running my hand up the neck, the rough edges of the frets gave me several finger lacerations. So, nice guitar for the money (pretty abalone inlays around the sound hole), but be prepared to take it to your local repair shop or luthier to have it set up properly and have the frets dressed!
