Mitchell's MD300S Solid Spruce Top acoustic guitar offers balanced sound and amazing projection, with comfortable design and a moderate sticker price. Built on the popular dreadnought design, the Mitchell MD300S guitar possesses a deep and mid-size width, creating a sound chamber that offers well-balanced tone that sounds great in any setting.

The dovetail neck joint adds strength in design, and lasting clarity. The mahogany neck is very responsive, and adds warmth in the acoustic guitar's mid-range. The Mitchell acoustic guitar's 25-1/2" scale and 43mm nut width adds comfort when moving up and down the rosewood fretboard's 20 frets.

I got this guitar a few weeks ago. This is Mitchell's flagship. At the current blowout price it is a steal. This guitar offers a lot of bling for the bucks. The craftsmanship is VERY GOOD. Intonation is good. The tuners are Gotoh style and hold just fine. The action was slightly high, but there was a small factory shim under the saddle. After removal the action was fine. No string buzz. I used Elixir extra lights and will change to regular lights after the guitar settles in some. NOTE: Mitchell does not recommend heavier than medium gauge strings on this guitar. The fret wires are the thin traditional type. The fret ends could use a little dressing, but not bad at all. The only other thing was the bridge/end pins, which I replaced with Martin pins with abalone inlays. The bridge pin holes could stand to be reamed slightly larger for better seating. These are both very minor issues. Solid spruce top, rosewood sides/back, mahogany neck, abalone rosette/purfling, rosewood cap on the headstock, gold tuners, compensated saddle...What's not to like! Fits well in a standard dreadnought case.
I went to Guitar Center believing I was coming home with a Takamine I've played a few times now. After playing 5 or 6 other guitars, a more experienced player next to me suggested I played this Mitchell. He said a string upgrade is a must. This guitar sings! I play a Taylor and wanted to buy my girlfriend a guitar who is eager to learn. I didn't plan on paying the Taylor price since I didn't know if my girlfriend would stick with it. After playing this guitar for a few minutes, I couldn't wait to get it home. The neck is easier than my Taylor and I anticipate that her smaller hands will be able to handle moving up and down the frets with comfort. This guitar reminds me of Martins I've played but never purchased. I will upgrade the strings as suggested and be bummed to see this guitar leave my home. I'm sure she will be pleased.
This is not a bad guitar but it is also not a martin nor a gibson. It is a decent sounding guitar in a price range flooded with nice sounding cheaply made imported guitars. I would suggest a silver Creek all wood guitar as a better buy for one hundred less. The look of the guitar is run of the mill the sound is good when compared to nothing but play this guitar and you will feel the difference in the quality of the neck and harmonic resonance compared to others good quality axes this one is average.
It sounds as good as the Martin D-18 that I had and my wife said it even sounded better. I changed strings and the tech lowered the strings for me. I am very pleased with it and it has the Martin sound. For the money, you can not beat this guitar
I must admit, this guitar didn't sound so great when I bought it, it had a few fret buzz and dull sound due to the cheap strings installed to the guitar. Instead of returning it, I've decided to add some new strings possibly change the nut and saddle to bone. When I went to a local luthier, he told me that changing the nut and saddle could possibly affect the tone in a negative manner because the saddle that it has was made specifically for this guitar, therefore I changed the strings to Martin SP instead. It sings to me like a Martin and the fret buzz was gone. The action was perfect and additionally it looks like a really expensive guitar. I would really recommend this to anyone as well as changing the strings to martin sp for a martin like sound or elixer for a taylor like sound.
What's with negative reviews I've seen on this guitar? It is a real nice looking, good sounding, easy playing acoustic. It reminds me a lot of my Washburn D-30S. In fact they are almost identical in looks save for a few cosmetic differences.For the price it is an awesome guitar. I put some new strings on it and it just makes me smile every time I play it. Very nice.
