When you build something as specialized as a musical instrument, it pays to have values. For Mitchell, the number one value is tradition. By sticking to classic design principles, Mitchell acoustic guitars always strike the perfect balance of playability and timeless sound. The commitment to tradition also shows in their craftsmanship, and what's more, Mitchell guitars are affordable on any budget. So whether you're a beginner in need of a solid first instrument or an expert looking for a reliable "daily driver" to take on the road, there's a great fit for you in this section.
One of the biggest decisions you'll need to make is whether you'd like a basic acoustic model or an acoustic-electric one. Mitchell has plenty of each - take the MD100 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar and the MD100CE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar for instance. These two instruments are very similar, but the key feature that sets them apart is that the MD100CE has built-in electronics that make it ready to connect to an acoustic guitar amplifier right out of the box. If you plan to plug in for performing or recording, an acoustic-electric Mitchell is the way to go.
There's another, subtler difference between those two dreadnought guitars: the MD100CE is a cutaway model. You'll find plenty of other cutaway instruments in the Mitchell lineup, including the MX400 Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric Guitar, the Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar and the Element Series ME2CEC Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar. The advantage of the cutaway is that you have more room to reach the highest frets, so if you're looking for the best versatility you can get, put one of these on your wish list. They'll give you the access you need to play the most challenging pieces.
Not many instruments are as recognizable as the acoustic guitar, and there's a good reason for that: over the years, it has found its way into virtually every culture and musical style. No matter what that means for you, if you're looking for a great instrument, you're in good hands with Mitchell acoustic guitars. The simple formula of professional quality at an entry-level price point is a great one, and it makes Mitchell a fantastic choice for any musician.
