Comments about Mitchell MU50SE Acoustic-Electric Concert Ukulele with Solid Cedar Top:

This ukulele looks great and sounds great. I love the arched back, metal tuners, banding, and wood quality on the fretboard, sides, and back. I felt happy every time I held it and tuned it up to practice. But there are a few build quality issues I ran into.

The first one I bought had a dead tuner / pickup right out of the box. The one they replaced it with had rusty red-brown, oily residue coming out of the tuners, and a very VERY strong chemical smell. It was so strong I had to stop playing after a few minutes. Airing it out in my garage over 2 weeks with a fan blowing at it did not help.

I also noticed the cedar top dents very easily. If you press firmly on it with your finger pad, it feels like paper. Pressing even gently with any harder object, such as your nail, leaves a permanent dent in the top. I've never seen this from any ukulele or guitar.

I took my replacement back to Guitar Center and the guys behind the counter said I must have gotten two lemons and I could take a look through the 20 or so they had and pick one that didn't have issues. Most of these didn't have the strong chemical smell problem, but 3 of them had broken tops right out of the box. About a quarter had rusty oily residue leaking from the tuners, and several had slightly mismatched wood for the top and back, with a noticeable gap between. In light of these issues I ended up doing a straight return.

I miss this ukulele a lot but they need to get their act together. Most barebones entry level ukuleles I've seen have better build quality and quality control than the mu50se. This was supposed to be a small step up, right?

    Comments about Mitchell MU50SE Acoustic-Electric Concert Ukulele with Solid Cedar Top:

    Bought this and a MU75. Love this Uke! Not as strongly built as the MU75 but it's great deal of fun to play and the sound has more of a punch with the cedar top and arched back. Good for adults. Tuner works great. MU75 will take more abuse and better for kids or travel but this one is great for home or studio.

      I got this for Christmas. I'm a novice, and it's excellent for what I'm using it for. It definitely is a great starter uke.
