    Mitchell makes a very nice guitar for the price. Again, I would give more than a 10 here if possible. By just re-conditioning the neck, buffing the frets, and changing the strings which took about 2 hours time, the instrument turned out to be a very nice instrument. I have several other much more expensive instruments, but plan to keep this one for a long, long time.
    The guitar is made of all laminated woods, including the spruce top. I've been told for years that there is a distinct difference between solid and laminated woods in guitars, especially for the top. Usually solid woods cost far more. As an example, Mitchell's MD 100S, boasts a solid spruce top, but it retails for $120 more than the MD 100. In my view, the MD 100's laminate top didn't seem to really make any difference. When played side-by-side with some other manufacturers solid top guitars, this instument was completely comperable. The guitar had many qualities I would expect in a much more expensive guitar. Because it is a dreadnought, you would expect a powerful sound; it did not disappoint me. It also has a sweet balanced tone throughout the registers, and as far as I could tell near perfect intonation between the open string note and twelfth fret pitch either fretted or playing harmonic.

    The original factory strings were poor quality and corroded out of the box. Also, the wood on the fretboard and bridge were very dry. I reconditioned the wood on the fretboard and bridge, buffed the frets with 0000 steel wool, and replaced the strings with Martin Marquis 80/20 light gage strings. After a couple of days of playing, the guitar really came to life. For the price it is truly remarkable.

    If you use a strap, consider purchasing some black guitar strap buttons since it doesn't have one on the neck where it joins the body. Black will match the one that comes on the lower bout.
    For the price, it is very good. The finish is well one. The tuners could be better and on the G string require some "tinkering with" to get an exact pitch, but again, for the money I can't complain.
    If I could, I would give it a much higher rating value wise. For the money, you won't go wrong on this purchase.

      Bought 2 of these. Frets a little sharp. I needs good strings for sure. High E broke on one of them the first time I tuned it. Other than that its a great guitar for the money. Now off to tune the other one.

        Comments about Mitchell MD100 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        I've had this guitar for over 2 years now and it still plays the same as it did when I first got it. It is BY FAR the best bang for your buck! I've already gotten 2 years out of it and will definitely get many, many more. I changed the strings but other than that, no other adjustments were made. The construction of this instrument is fantastic. It looks amazing: it's a very pretty guitar. I can't believe how good the quality is for that low of a price. Being a teenager who just plays in their free time, this guitar is absolutely perfect. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. When in doubt, just get it! It's an amazing guitar, and you will not be disappointed!

        I purchased a Mitchell MD300 from Musicians Friend last year & was extremely pleased. I found a Mitchell MD100 at a local flea market recently & it is a terrific instrument. It was used, but in very good condition. I changed the bridge pins & put a set of Martin SP custom lights on it & I would be proud to play it anywhere in any occasion. This one, like my Md300 has a permanent home. The Mitchell guitars are well worth the money.

          I really like this guitar, I've mostly played electric guitars but when I picked this one up at guitar center for a very great price, I fell in love with it. I did however feel the need for new strings so I went with the "Ernie Ball 80/20 bronze alloy (Earthwood) medium light acoustic strings". and yeah it sounds amazing now. really gives the guitar that warm campfire music sound/feel. I definitely recommend this guitar to anyone who wants great sound and great feel, and if you have a tight budget. you WONT find a better acoustic guitar for that awesome of a deal. enjoy, everybody!

              Needed a "beater" guitar to leave at church. Trusted the reviews and glad I did! You won't find a better guitar for the bucks. Put a set of DR Black Beauties in 11GA on it. Amazed at the sound. If you are looking for something to throw in the vehicle and drag around to jam with, then this is your baby.

              Inexpensive Acoustic that plays and sounds great.

              Comments about Mitchell MD100 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

              This is a good looking, solid guitar and I'm very happy with my purchase. I've only had it for 4 days so we'll see what it looks like in a couple years but at this price, who cares.
              I wanted a cheap or shall I say inexpensive acoustic guitar for around the house. I have a vintage Harmony Montery "f" hole acoustic but it doesn't project as well nor does it have the full body sound of a standard acoustic. Plus I really don't like taking it out of the house for fear of it getting damaged so I started researching budge acoustics and was surprised at all the options. I read the reviews others had posted on the Mitchell MD100 vs some of the other brands and decided that for the price what did I really have to lose. I took the advise of one other reviewers and purchased a set of Martin Marquis extra light strings to go with it. The guitar appeared to be pretty good quality out of the box but the strings that came with it had to go. Changed the strings and was playing in minutes. Some others reviews mentioned adjusting the neck but mine seems to be fine.
              Find me a better guitar for the buck.

              Mitchell MD-100s Best Kept Secret

              Comments about Mitchell MD100 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

              The guitar's tone," finish an craftsmanship is fantastic.I just received my MD-100S and it is as good if not better than all the good reviews it has been getting. Major guitar manufactures probably would not want you to be able to see", hold, or play a MD-100 before deciding to purchasing their guitar. Why??? While check this guitar out and find out for yourself.... It is just a great value for the money.
