I originally purchased this as a "Condition 4" for cheap with a hole punched in the back down by the endpin. Even with that hole, it played and sounded beautifully.

I fixed the hole and settled upon Martin M-530 Phosphor Bronze Extra Lights. I played it like that for a couple years.

I recently had it professionally set up, the frets leveled (they were pretty worn) and had a Tusq nut and saddle. I also moved up to the slightly heavier M-540 PB Lights for strings.

These changes have transformed this instrument. It had a strong voice before, but whoa, the Tusq nut and saddle along with the slightly heavier strings have given it a far richer, more powerful voice than ever before.

I play live performances with this guitar using both an AKG Perception 170 mic on the guitar and a K&K Pure Mini piezo pickup with a preamp. It sounds great.

I have zero desire to replace it "in-kind" with another, more expensive dreadnought acoustic. I'm thinking about getting a Recording King ROS-06 simply to try out a 000 style guitar and the wider neck, but not to replace this Mitchell.

I still feel like I won the lottery every time I play this guitar.

I would not recommend this guitar. Based on the reviews, I thought this guitar would be great. However, as soon as I opened the box I could tell otherwise. I first noticed a very strong glue smell which was really overpowering. I noticed the very thin wood which looked really cheap. The fret ends need to be filed, they are not at all smooth. The guitar has a somewhat good tone which is the only reason it got anything other than a 1 star rating. I would recommend at least playing one of these before you buy it.
Nothing fancy.
Poor.
Not great when you consider the quality.

    Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    All I can say, for the price paid, I am absolutely blown away by this guitar. I ordered the natural finish. The first thing you notice is this really is a beautiful looking guitar. Classy, not too flashy. Nobody would guess its low price.

    Its physical beauty matches its tone. The solid spruce top and mahogany body sound stunning. Just so rich, warm and musical. It'll give you plenty of volume too. Whether you're fingerpicking or strumming. It has its own sound.

    This guitar plays lovely right out of the box. The acdtion is nice and low without any buzz. I haven't noticed any intonation problems.
    The tuners seem to keep it in tune for a long time. And kudos to MF for shipping it safely and quickly.

    The bottom line is this is the best darn value for an acoustic dreadnought (with a solid top!) I've ever seen. I've paid over twice the amount for acoustics that don't hold a candle to this one. You can't go wrong with this guitar.

        Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        I owm 2 Mitchell guitars and I won't leave home without them. Been playing for about 40 years and will not play in plubic and sound bad. Bottom line these guitars sound good and if some druink falls or steps on one you just buy another put some ej16s on it and it will sound as good as anything at the party. Why would you take a Gison or a Martin or any other high end guitar out in the elements and maybe have something happen to it when they make such a great sounding guitar that you can pass out at the fire and let everybody play, yes even your buddy that gets drunk and falls over everything. Just let him play and sing along and don't worry. Mitchell guitars don't leave home without one.

        What a great guitar!

        By Jonatan Haro

        from Texas

        Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        I have been playing this guitar for over a year, and in any moment has never disappointed me. I know a lot of people who play expensive guitars and some of them have played my Mitchell md100s and they have thought of my guitar as an expensive guitar. When it comes to tell them the actual price they don't believe me and that's because this guitar sounds amazing, it stays in tune for a LONG period of time. Mine came with D'Addario strings so in my opinion they don't need to be replaced. I play this guitar almost every day and when I hear that amazing reach sound I just don't want to stop playing it. I don't know if you are trying to buy this guitar as a beginner, intermediate player, but really it will beat some of the high priced guitars. I came to read the reviews of this guitar before buying mine and I couldn't believe all the good things they were saying about this guitar until I bought mine, so if you can go and try one at any shop and you will find this guitar really awesome. I bought mine without even trying one and guess what... I chose the best guitar for a very good price.Nice
        Great
        It could be more expensive with such quality.

        Can't beat it for the $

        By Frank Mortillaro

        from US

        Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        Nice for the price
        Sure it's not a martin or taylor but for the price it's a great starter guitar. It plays nice and sounds great. The strings that come with it are a little hard on the fingers. So I just ordered a set of xl martin strings. That should do the trick.
        Only complaint is that the Fret ends stick out a little. Mitchell should have filed them down.

        Pleasantly Surprised

        By John Weaver

        from Alabama

        Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        No point in wasting words here, I bought this as a starter guitar for my 15 year old daughter for Christmas ( mainly because of the price and reviews). It came in yesterday so I took it out of the box to inspect it. I had to adjust the truss rod a little to get rid of the "buzzing" but then it was all smooth from there. I ended up playing it for about 45 minutes...this thing is remarkable, it really does play like a much higher priced " big name" guitar and the sound was fantastic. I will be ordering another for myself in January.

          I ordered it yesterday, it arrived today (standard ground). The fretwork is good. Easy on the fingers.
          Loud as a freight train when strummed hard. Long sustain. Intonation good.It has "Nubone XB" nut & saddle (made by graph-tech). It feels lightweight, which is OK with me. I'm using the strings that came with it. I am only a beginner and this is my opinion.

          Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

          Great guitar, straight out of the box. well setup and ok neck. It sounds normal, like a 200 dollar guitar should. Really not the best guitar in the world, but for beginners it is a steal! The looks really add to it, beautiful body, and the necks style is nice. The neck feels alright, but it definately isn't a fast neck. the only reason I say this is because I play much more expensive guitar. My number one complaint is the neck mount. It sticks out making it impossible to play past the 12th fret. Cool that it has 22 frets, but when you can only reach 12 what is the point. But if that doesn't bother you than i definately recommend this guitar. Decent sound for the price!

            Comments about Mitchell MD100S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

            I've been playing for years. My parents got me this for Christmas a few years ago. Since then, i've had the chance to change it, but i have always refused. I've played on taylor guitars that did not sound or feel as nice as this. I did sand down the neck to remove the polish, which is how i enjoy it.

            I have not found a single other acoustic in this price range that can compare (new, that is). I would highly recommend this for beginners, or anybody needing an acoustic to have around.

            Also, it is extremely light.
