      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.

      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:

          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 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.

              Comments about Mitchell MX420 Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              When I first saw this guitar at Guitar Center, I didn't even want to pick it up because it was a Mitchell and I had really low expectations but it is without a doubt the best guitar for the money on the racks right now. The thin body makes it so easy to play, it's sound fills up any room, it has the most beautiful look and sound, it's cheap, and I am absolutely in love with it!!! I took it into the Martin-Gibson room and compared it to a $3000 Martin Performing Artist Series Grand Performer guitar and I kid you not, they sounded and felt exactly the same. I am still blown away by how incredible it is and I've had it for months. I play rock and country and it is the perfect sound for both, believe it or not. If you're considering buying it, don't look at any others because it will be a waste of time. Buy this guitar. You will not be sorry.

              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.

              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.
