I bought this because I wanted an acoustic with bright sounds, but still have some sustain. Also, I wanted an acoustic that is easy to play, light weight, comfortable, and beautiful. This guitar does that for me. I had played this at my GC before ordering online, because I like to have my guitars new, and not touched by countless others who mess around at the store. I use it to record with my Reason 9 software by Propellerhead, and the guitar sounds better than some of the samples on Reason, and that is impressive! I have also been told that it's sound matches it's beauty, so that just reaffirms my comparison with its sounding better than some other professional recordings on Reason 9. The construction of this guitar is above average from what I can tell at this price. Martins make some of their guitars with the same X bracing, but this guitar has a gloss finish, whereas low end Martans are laminated, and that is huge if you know anything about acoustic instruments in general. Lamenated equals a choking of the sound, and that's not a good thing. Lamenated instraments are usually for beginners who bang up their guitars on accident a lot due to being young, inexperienced, or just clumsy. Which reminds me. If you get this guitar then I recommend a good case that fits this guitar perfect. It's the Musician's Gear Deluxe Gypsy Jazz Hardshell Guitar Case Black. I own this case and I'm glad I do. One, to protect my beautiful guitar when I go teach lessons, and to keep it humidified with my Music Nomad The Humitar - Acoustic Guitar Humidifier.

First off ,I was talked into this guitar after the one I originally wanted wasnt there. I wish I would've just left as if he would've been honest I wouldn't of purchased this one, but that's on me. Now the fact that it came with 2 broke strings is on GC. I haven't taken it back as of yet because of the ill experience I had buying it.

Comments about Mitchell MX420 Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The MX420 is an incredibly beautiful guitar and it just feels right in your hands. The body is not as deep as most grand auditoriums, so it feels great holding it, and it is extremely portable. The sound is deep, bright, and has a wonderful twang in every note. The neck is slightly more narrow than most acoustics, and is much more playable than your standard size acoustic. Let's get back to the beauty of this guitar, it is a piece of eye candy. The 'blackburst' finish is simply gorgeous! I highly recommend this guitar.

Eye Catching

Comments about Mitchell MX420 Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is our 5th guitar in the family. All from Guitar Center. We have Classical acoustic nylon, electric Bass, electric guitar, 2 acoustic steel string. My daughter loves this Mitchell MX420 Midnight Black finish guitar. It's perfect for her size, not too big not too small. Sounds great especially with acoustic amp. Everyone who sees it make their head turns for a second look because of the beautiful color. The strings are far from the neck so you need to have it adjusted immediately at Guitar Center for free. After the adjustment it plays so easy.

      This was purchased for me as a Christmas gift 2 years ago and it is still going strong. I travel and play about 35-40 shows a year in clubs, festivals, fairs, and concert venues, and it works well for all of the above. I also use it in the studio and use the pickups plus an ambient mic and it sounds wonderful. Comfortable to play and I look forward to adding other Mitchell guitars to my collection and arsenal.

      Comments about Mitchell MX420 Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I don't play because I'm good, I play because I love to. I try to keep challenging myself (I'm fairly new to the guitar world and self taught). I find this particular guitar to be extremely beautiful and easy to play. I love everything about it, couldn't be happier with my purchase!

        Comments about Mitchell MX420 Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I don't normally buy a guitar I can't touch first but reviews were great so I took a chance. Very glad I did. This thing is amazing! When I got it the action was pretty decent, but I loosened the truss rod to lower it. Then I did it again, even lower. One more time and it was as far as it could go. The strings were so low they were almost touching the frets, but not one hint of a buzz anywhere! Now this acoustic plays like my American Telecaster! Best action I've ever seen on an acoustic guitar. Love the smaller size too, very comfortable for gigging all night.

          I'm not a professional musician or anything, but I feel like I can confidently say that this is a good guitar. EQ is great, Built-In Tuner is very precise, and it has an amazing sound. It's really bar for me to put down. Along with sounding and feeling great, the finish is also gorgeous. I have a friend who's spent $700+ on an acoustic and he even likes mine more.

              Comments about Mitchell MX420 Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I've had this for about a year and a half now and am still blown away every time I pull it out and play it. I just don't make snap decisions when I am making a guitar purchase. I had gone back to Guitar Center several times over over a few weeks testing different brands and even though this and it's counter part the MX400 were a beautiful guitars, sounded amazing and played very well. I didn't want to like them because they were Mitchells. The day I finally decided to buy this one, I took them both into the high end guitar room and matched them up to a Martin and a Gibson Humming bird. I kid you not, both these Mitchells matched up very well to the higher end guitars. the playability of these guitars warents a much higher price. I was going to buy both of them because you can't beat the price but decided to take just this one home one because I liked the dark color but secondly to test it out for awhile, then give my review. I'm probably going to get the other one now.
