I bought this Mitchell MDJ10 for my 8-year-old son, after trying to teach him lessons on my back-up dreadnought acoustic. Hard as he tried, the dreadnought was too big. We saw this at our Albany GC, and we fell head over heels for it. Beautifully finished and appointed, good sound/projection (for its size)with the bowed back, and best of all, it stays in tune wonderfully! Still can't believe what we got for the price. The gig bag offers no real protection other than keeping dust off it, but that's not a deal-breaker. I've been enjoying it and playing it more than my son. It's smaller size and cost ensures that it will accompany us on our summer vacations. A great guitar for kids to start playing on, or as a nifty back-up/second guitar for anyone looking for a nice unit at a great price.

For five and under it's ok!

It's inexpensive is about it. Small, doesn't stay in tune and looks- feels cheaply made. Bought it for a gift but found myself apologizing for it's quality.

Wow! What a great little guitar.

By RPT

from Portland, OR

Comments about Mitchell MDJ10 Junior Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag:

I saw this Mitchell while looking at Martin and Taylor travel guitars and was blown away by the craftmanship. The fit and finish is seamless with a partial-bowed back that is absolutely beautiful. Sound is excellent, especially in the higher range. Great action, fun to play and always fetching compliments. People will want to know how much you paid for such a great little guitar.

Mitchell Acoustic

By Brian Leonelli

from Milford, CT

Comments about Mitchell MDJ10 Junior Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag:

Got a Mitchell acoustic for Christmas and I have to say, it sound awesome. Good action, easy to learn on. Just began picking up the guitar again after a few years and I love the way it looks and sounds. My wife made an excellent choice. Affordable, good quality. I reccomend a Mitchell to anyone starting out.

Great starter guitar

By John

from Bemidji, MN

Comments about Mitchell MDJ10 Junior Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag:

I ordered this for my daughter, who is 9 and just learning. I had read that it was a slightly better quality instrument than many of the other starters in this price range, and my experience bares this out. Our local shop sells Jay Jr. youth guitars, and this one far exceeded the quality of those. It's very well made. I also have used this guitar to play on while I wait or m new one to arrive. While it's a bit small for my adult hands, I've been able to play fairly well. Overall, we are very happy with this purchase, and recommend it to anyone looking for a starter or travel guitar.

Very nice...

By voodooman

from idaho

Comments about Mitchell MDJ10 Junior Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag:

Bought this little guitar for my 12-year old daughter and she loves it. Body size is just right, action is light and easy, and it has good tone. Stays in tune well. Visually, the details are nice. The gig bag is completely unpadded, but protects against dust and scratches. Overall, very nice for the price.

You little BEAUTY!!!

By Rosie

from Melbourne, Australia

Comments about Mitchell MDJ10 Junior Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag:

OH MY GOSH!!, just bought this little gen from Sacramento GC (Rock on Clayton and Gabe) and I just can't stop playing it. It has a gorgeous warm sustaining tone, and the action is perfect. I bought if for my daughters, but now they will have to fight me for it. Why bother with the baby Taylor, when this is far superior, and half the price. How i wish i had bought two...Yes I'm in love!

Great guitar but Play the one you buy first

By Terence

from Franklin, TN

Comments about Mitchell MDJ10 Junior Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag:

Ok: as I researched this guitar and others saw a lot of mixed reviews. I bought mine from Guitar center and went and played it first along with the baby Martin and Taylor along with a few others. The demo one I played sounded well but had a odd intonation..it just could not hit a c chord and sound right. The Martin and Taylor sounded marginally better but not twice the price better. The build is very different with the martin having a solid top but a back and sides type of particle board laminate that uses a wood grain picture on the outer layer. I read rumors that this starts peeling within a year or two.While I really wanted to like that martin it just looked low quality almost like a plastic guitar. the Taylor looked to be built better but i still heard of some issues with the glue at the seams. The MDJ10 definitely looked the best to me, solid top and I know that the outside of the back was mahogany and the inside of the back was mahogany as well so maybe solid mahogany? I would think for a laminate the inside would be a cheaper tone wood.if it were a laminate. but as to sound I asked if they had any other of the MDJ10's in back and they had 1....they brought it out and we tuned it. It was amazing the difference between that guitar and the demo one even the salesman was startled. It sounded very Superior to all the guitars I had demo'd. I think that Mitchel has some inconsistencies in set up at the factory.could be more than that but i would encourage you play the one you plan to own first or be willing to return until you find the right one. Mine sounds great...not as good as my Gibson but no intonation issues like the demo one I played. For me this will be a good travel/beach/cabin guitar to take with me and not worry about nick and bumps because it did not cost that much.but still has a good sound

The little 12 fret that could

By Theo

from Hollywood CA

Comments about Mitchell MDJ10 Junior Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag:

I saw this little guitar hanging up outside the acoustic room, picked it up & looked it over. Overall build quality & finish is quite good, just a little extra glue squeeze out at the edge of the soundhole next to the fretboard extension. The model I saw had a straight fretboard termination at the soundhole, rather than curved, which I prefer aesthetically. Examined the top, which is visually reminiscient of red spruce (very wide, straight grain with pronounced dark streaks), & noticed that on this particular model the grain was continous at the edges of the soundhole. Even though the label does not have an 'S' (for solid top) & the description shows 'genuine' spruce top, the guitar that I picked up definitely has a solid top. Tuned it up - the covered tuning machines are the only shortcoming I can see on this guitar, due to their instability, which requires a good bit of time spent 'dialing it in'. Adding die cast tuners, which will require enlarging the tuner post holes in the headstock & drilling additional set screw holes is something I will doing soon. Played it - Action is low, neck relief was adjusted correctly with a minimum of relief, nut slots were cut to the proper depth & saddle height allows adequate string break-angle. Very full, rounded tone for a 3/4 size guitar, which was surprising as it is very easy for a guitar this small to sound thin, hollow or 'tinny'. Other guitar makers should take notice of how a 12 fret neck, along with moving the bridge down from the soundhole & making the necessary changes in bracing geometry, would most likely improve the depth of tone & overall dynamic range of their travel-size guitars. A set of Elixir PolyWeb 80/20 lights would add a considerable amount of mellowness to this guitar & would also make it easier to play, especially if it is begin considered as a child's first guitar.

Not a baby taylor, or a 3/4 Yamaha

By Richard Pugh

from Tom Bean, TX

Comments about Mitchell MDJ10 Junior Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag:

This is a beautiful guitar. When I pulled it out of the box I was very impressed with the finish. That said the sound is lacking compared to other 3/4 or travel sized guitars. The Baby Taylor blows this away and so does the Yamaha JR1 Mini Folk Guitar I give this guitar 5/5 on look and feel but only 3/5 on sound. (don't get me wrong this guitar does sound good, but there are similarly priced guitars that sound WAY better)

Best Guitar For a Starter

By Hudson Beers

from Vacaville, CA

Comments about Mitchell MDJ10 Junior Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag:

My grandpa just bought me this Mitchell acoustic guitar and it works great. The action is just right and the tune is perfect. I expected it t be needed to be broken into to make it sound right, but not for this guitar.Even though I am just starting to play, my grandpa has taught me some of the basics of playing guitar. Overall, I reccomend this to any kid starting to play guitar.
