    Comments about Mitchell MX420 Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    When I first saw this guitar at Guitar Center, I didn't even want to pick it up because it was a Mitchell and I had really low expectations but it is without a doubt the best guitar for the money on the racks right now. The thin body makes it so easy to play, it's sound fills up any room, it has the most beautiful look and sound, it's cheap, and I am absolutely in love with it!!! I took it into the Martin-Gibson room and compared it to a $3000 Martin Performing Artist Series Grand Performer guitar and I kid you not, they sounded and felt exactly the same. I am still blown away by how incredible it is and I've had it for months. I play rock and country and it is the perfect sound for both, believe it or not. If you're considering buying it, don't look at any others because it will be a waste of time. Buy this guitar. You will not be sorry.
