      Comments about Mitchell MX400 Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric guitar:

      I picked up a Mitchell MX400 back in August '16 when a Guitar Center opened near my place. I had intended to pick up a Yamaha FX but was drawn to the quilted burl ash of the Mitchell. When I picked up the Mitchell it felt very comfortable, didn't seem to bother my shoulder at all. I sat and toyed around with it for about 15 minutes. I felt that the action was a little high and I asked the salesman about having it adjusted. He said they certainly could do that however, Mitchell sets these things up at the factory and the way it is set up now is Mitchell's recommendation and should be kept as such. Being a novice I figured I can take it home and play it a little bit and if I don't like it I can always bring it in later for an adjustment. Over all the sound wasn't bad. I was more impressed with the looks and the feel of the guitar and not with how well it played or how it sounded. However, it did seem a little difficult to play. I chalked this up to me being inexperienced and carried on. Fast forward a few months. Ive been taking lessons for about 6 weeks. Had a few friends and my instructor check out my guitar. Armed with multiple opinions I took it to a locally recommended Luther. Now I had read a number of reviews where people compared this Mitchell to Taylors, and Martins. I thought to myself...nah. Don't get me wrong its a nice guitar but to compare it to one of the above mentioned was a stretch...or so I thought. I brought the Mitchell home from the Luther after he made some serious adjustment and slapped on a fresh set of stings my favorite strings. I was blown away! I could not believe the sound coming out of my previously average guitar. I was truly shocked at what I heard. I focused a bit on my chords and fret hand fingering and again was just floored at how easy this thing now played. I liked and enjoyed this guitar before, now I absolutely love it. Such warm, rich, clear, projecting sound, bright but not too much, and oh so much easier to play. Awesome!

        Comments about Mitchell MX400 Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric guitar:

        Im a 57yr old male and have played since age 12 and professionally for 24yrs. Mostly play electric's as a lead guitarist but also enjoy acoustic as well. This is a Great overall value for someone not wanting to
        spend a small fortune for an acoustic. The replacement saddle included provides lower string action and sanded mine down about two widths of a 6th string or bottom E. Plays like an electric with sweet sound
        unplugged and through an amp as well. Beautiful craftsmanship and the burl wood is so nice to look at.
        Nicely done neck and put a set of Phosphor Bronze strings on and plays like a dream! The only reason for
        4 out of 5 stars is that it dosent have quite as much sound as a thicker bodied guitar but that's what an amp is for, you can easily adjust for that. Great work Mitchell!

            Comments about Mitchell MX400 Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric guitar:

            Went to Guitar Center and tried out a bunch of $300-$500 acoustic guitars. I've been playing since 1970 and had a lot of great guitars. All the main brands (Fender, Ibanez, Martin, etc.), didn't feel right. The salesman brought me this Mitchell MX400...WOW. The action is great and it feels and plays like a Strat. I don't care what the label says. When it feels right, that's the one to get. It has a Burl Ash body, sides and back along with a hickory neck with rosewood fret board and bridge. It also has a built in tuner, pickup, and volume control with 3 band EQ. Never heard of this brand but for the price, this is a great guitar.

                Nice lower priced guitar that is easy and fun to play, sounds decent, and stays in tune. My young son is picking it up as well and he can handle it easily (he's 9 years old). Very good value!

                  The initial sound blew me away! It was incredible. To match thr sound the look of the guitar is incredibly sexy as well.
                  The only negative that I can give this guitar is that the internal tuner is off, however, I have not read the manual yet, and I could just be ignorant of how to use it.
                  Regardless, I do highly recommend this instrument to you if you are looking for a nice guitar to practice with at home, safely take out and perform with friends, or even put on a show.

                    Comments about Mitchell MX400 Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric guitar:

                    its a very beautiful guitar, stays in tune well while using, and when its not, it doesn't take much time to re-tune it at all, just a few minutes and its ready to play again..sometimes its still right in tune. depends on how many days i have n't played it and the warm/cold of the room, like humidity has a lot to do with tune changes of a acoustic guitar. i wish it would have been a little cheaper in price, but its well worth every penny for a instrument of this quality and beauty. it sits right in my arms, im a small guy, so its perfect for me, and im also a beginner with guitar, been drumming for 35 years and wanted to pick up the guitar for helping me with my memory issues, im teaching myself to play, and its perfect for a pro or a beginner, playing shows , or just jamming in the basement, and or doing some recording ..its just a great little guitar. very easy to handle ,its not to heavy, to me its perfect for what i was looking for, i would rec it to everyone to buy one, u get your moneys worth with this beauty..not doubt in my mind.. i would have probably paid a little more for it just to have it. right now so far i have nothing really bad i can say about this guitar, or i would be lying. peace and happy new year from little dave in cleveland.

                    I went in to the Guitar Center by my house looking for a nice acoustic guitar that was right for my size. The employee who was helping us showed me a few, but my eyes kept staring at this beautiful guitar. I tried out the options he showed me and they were all just OK. When I actually played the Mitchell is was love instantly. Still insane about this guitar.
