OVERVIEW

Top-of-the-line Mitchell acoustic with solid spruce top and striped sapele back and sides.

Comments about Mitchell Element Series ME1 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

My review is based strictly on the guitar, not the price. The build quality is very good. The flamed maple binding is a really nice feature. The natural finish is really nice. I wouldnt quite call it "satin" it's almost as if there is no finish and it really helps the sound quality. The guitar breathes really well. I'd say it has a medium sustain with good clarity. Solid spruce top. I'd compare the sound to a entry level Martin. It has a unique, shimmering sound. The tuners are nice and work well. My only drawback is the neck isn't as hard as is like it to be. It had a slight forward bow as soon as I received it and I was able to correct it easily. I just don't like having to use the truss rod. The neck adjusted very easily. I'd rate the action a 4 out of 5 with no fret buzz. It's good/great but not excellent. That's the best I can get it withought fret buzz.
My rating of other guitars is:
Dean Ak48 2/5 stars
Fender fa100 2/5 stars
Martin X series 4.5/5 stars
Walden D570 4.5/5 stars

So you can see I rate the Mitchell ME1 very high.

    Comments about Mitchell Element Series ME1 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    This guitar sounds amazing, feels great. Looks like a top of the line guitar. For the price I don't know if u can find better. The construction isn't perfect so don't be surprised if some thing isn't perfect. The harmonics are incredible
