Deluxe dreadnought featuring the rich warmth of rosewood back and sides.

Mitchell's MD300S Solid Spruce Top acoustic guitar offers balanced sound and amazing projection, with comfortable design and a moderate sticker price. Built on the popular dreadnought design, the Mitchell MD300S guitar possesses a deep and mid-size width, creating a sound chamber that offers well-balanced tone that sounds great in any setting. Whether practicing alone, jamming with buddies, or getting wild at center stage, the dreadnought guitar body looks great and sounds superb.

The Mitchell MD300S guitar features a solid spruce top, offering balanced tone and plenty of full-range projection. The rosewood body complements these qualities and adds clarity to each note. The dovetail neck joint adds strength in design, and lasting clarity. The mahogany neck is very responsive, and adds warmth in the acoustic guitar's mid-range. The Mitchell acoustic guitar's 25-1/2" scale and 43mm nut width adds comfort when moving up and down the rosewood fretboard's 20 frets.

Abalone purfling, die-cast high-ratio tuners, gold hardware, and a natural finish add to the overall beauty of the instrument, making the MD300S acoustic guitar Mitchell's finest dreadnought offering. Case sold separately.

I received my Mitchell MD300s last week, and I am extremely pleased. The guitar was triple boxed so received it in perfect condition. I have to say this is one beautiful guitar the finish is flawless and the rosette and binding are beautiful. The build quality both inside and out look great, well put together. The strings on mine were completely rusted beyond ever playing, but I always order strings with any new guitar. I use Martin 80/20 bronze mediums and I had to remove a shim that was under the saddle, now it has a nice low action. after a week to acclimate I had to do a small truss rod adjustment. The frets are all well finished and the neck is smooth and has a soft v shape. The tuners are nice and smooth and hold tune well.There is no fret buzz or dead frets anywhere on the neck. The guitar has a wonderful tone good deep bass with a nice pronounced midrange, and really nice crisp highs. I hope with age the solid top will open up even more and the tone will mellow out some. Buy this guitar while they are still practically giving them away, you will not find a better looking better sounding guitar for the price anywhere.

50 years playing guitar, and I own some very nice acoustic guitars. This one was built to nice specs and I expected to have to perform a complete setup, but wasn't prepared for the structural damage. Perhaps from the long journey from China or the extended stay in a warehouse (or both!), this guitar was so dried out that the top had sunk around the sound hole, the fret ends were projecting out the side of the neck, and the neck looked like a roller-coaster along the fretboard. I pulled the strings and gave it a week in a high humidity environment, and that helped a lot. But in the end, the top would not return completely and the fret ends were still sharp. This made a setup all but impossible, but I managed to raise the saddle enough to get it singing well. Still is a sight to look at, with the sunken soundhole and bridge, the fretboard is still uneven, but it plays pretty well with new Martin SP4100 strings. Intonation has suffered a bit, but I was not willing to make a custom saddle to try to remedy it. This guitar competes with others in this same price range, and I was hoping for a factory setup similar to ANY similarly priced Yamaha FG730S. The Yamaha is always near perfect, even though it probably spent the same time on it's journey from China to me. This Mitchell has the potential to be a nice guitar, but the quality control means you might need to try repeatedly to get a good one. One has to wonder, even then, how well it'll hold up over time.

    Comments about Mitchell MD300S Solid Spruce Top Acoustic Guitar:

    I have played guitar for 53 years. Been in several country bands, several Gospel groups & currently in a Bluegrass band. Have made many recordings & done many stage shows with Grand Ole Opry stars. Have owned countless guitars, but the Mitchell MD300 Solid Top fits me better than any I've owned. It is now my no. one instrument.

    Mitchell MD300S (Note MD200 is mentioned as reference)

    Comments about Mitchell MD300S Solid Spruce Top Acoustic Guitar:

    I tried every guitar at Guitar Center from $350 down. I prefer smoth/slick neck guitars, so any dull feeling (neck) guitar was OUT! Of all the guitars, I liked the Mitchell MD20 it had bright sound and lots of voulum. I checked to see if I could get it cheaper on internet, and found the MD300S. The add said MD200 & 300 were same except for the bling. (bling cost less????) I like bling, so I ordered MD300S. It came packaged good and looked beautiful! Problem is there was no way the guitar would play the way it was set-up: One string was dead and 2 others buzzed BAD!!! I checked on the internet (youtube) and figured out how to adjust neck and frets. I am quite happy with the guitar NOW! No, you should not have to set-up a guitar....but every guitar player should know how. Took me 20 year to get guts to adjust a neck; it was not so scarry. I would recommend the Mitchell MD300S, just keep in mind it will probably need to be set-up. One work-around, buy it set-up from a guitar store. Cost the same except for the tax.
    Everything is beautiful on this (MD300S) guitar except the neck dot enlays. They are dull and lack the bling.
    Guitar is of great quality- EXCEPT fret job was a no go (buzzing and dead spots).
    I would buy another MD300S to replace this one if needed.

    Good guitar at a great price!

    By Tim Allen

    from Philadelphia

    Comments about Mitchell MD300S Solid Spruce Top Acoustic Guitar:

    Some entry level guitars get a lot of puplicity on public forums as being "a good bang for the buck".
    I don't know why Mitchells don't get talked about more often. I own 3 now, and I play them more than my Yamaha, which gets all kinds of accolades on some forums. These guitars can be very good values for the money, and at the current price, you simply cannot go wrong with this guitar. Want to play by the campfire? Show up with a "beater" with bling and tone.

    Guitar

    By Gian Aguilar

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Mitchell MD300S Solid Spruce Top Acoustic Guitar:

    This is a fantastic guitar. I just got it two days ago so I expect writing another review once the guitar settles in well and I have some more experience with it. Until now it has made a good impression. The sound is well balanced, near perfect intonation, and very bright. It looks beatiful and will surely turn some heads. Get this guitar if you are a beginner, as a gift to any guitarist, or even if you are an experienced guitarist you will love this guitar.
    It features a solid spruce top, and beautiful rosewood back and sides. The fretboard and bridge are also rosewood. The goldplated tuners are very nice and hold the strings in tune pretty well. Its really a very pretty guitar with the abalone purfling and rosette.
    Excellent craftsmanship. The luthiers on this guitar really took pride in their work and it shows. Solid construction, no rattling, no dead frets, no string buzz, no glue residue, and looks like it will last a long time if taken care of.
    At this current blowout price, these guitars are a steal. Get one while the price is still low! You cant beat the guitar for value right now. The sound, features, and quality are well those of the 500-800 price range.

    wonderful instrument

    Comments about Mitchell MD300S Solid Spruce Top Acoustic Guitar:

    This guitar just needed new strings, about a half turn on the trussrod adjustment, and the saddle needed to have the shim taken out. The MD300s is the same guitar as the MD200s, but the MD300s has a more ornate binding, better spruce for the top, and gold plated tuners. The MD200s has glowing reviews and is priced about twice as much as the MD300s, yet the MD300s is the better guitar!

    Great value at a blowout price!

    Comments about Mitchell MD300S Solid Spruce Top Acoustic Guitar:

    I got this guitar a few weeks ago. This is Mitchell's flagship. At the current blowout price it is a steal. This guitar offers a lot of bling for the bucks. The craftsmanship is VERY GOOD. Intonation is good. The tuners are Gotoh style and hold just fine. The action was slightly high, but there was a small factory shim under the saddle. After removal the action was fine. No string buzz. I used Elixir extra lights and will change to regular lights after the guitar settles in some. NOTE: Mitchell does not recommend heavier than medium gauge strings on this guitar. The fret wires are the thin traditional type. The fret ends could use a little dressing, but not bad at all. The only other thing was the bridge/end pins, which I replaced with Martin pins with abalone inlays. The bridge pin holes could stand to be reamed slightly larger for better seating. These are both very minor issues. Solid spruce top, rosewood sides/back, mahogany neck, abalone rosette/purfling, rosewood cap on the headstock, gold tuners, compensated saddle...What's not to like! Fits well and looks great in a Musician's Gear tweed dreadnought case!

    Pretty piece of junk

    By Ren

    from Buffalo, New York

    Comments about Mitchell MD300S Solid Spruce Top Acoustic Guitar:

    I played with this guitar in my music store. I did everything with it. Changed the strings, tried to tune it, got others to to tune it. It's sound is horrible, pretty guitar, but not worth it. There was no possible way to get this guitar to sound right. It made buzzing sounds, it kept going untuned. I could not tune it, no one could. Most the other guitars in the shop were fine, okay, or great. This one is poor.
