We’ve all heard of Epiphone and Squier when it comes to inexpensive guitars, but Mitchell…? They’re actually a Guitar Center house brand that specializes in low-cost entry-level instruments.
Does this imply that their guitar sucks? Nope! In reality, if you can get beyond the moniker, the Mitchell MM100 is a superb little electric guitar for kids that fits even the tiniest budgets without sacrificing flair.
Walnut Stain MM100 Mini Double Cutaway Electric Guitar. The Mitchell MM100 has a one-piece maple neck with rosewood fretboard and a short-scale double-cutaway basswood body.
It includes two high-output ceramic humbucker pickups with enough power to power a guitar twice its size. The conventional, adjustable TOM-style bridge delivers firm intonation, while high-ratio tuners enable fine-tuning adjustment. The MM100 also has lots of sustain and bite because of its string-through-body design.
To ensure outstanding playability, all Mitchell electric guitars receive a comprehensive US setup and quality control check. Walnut Satin (WS), Black (BK), and Blood Red (BR) are the three colors available (BR). The case is available for purchase separately.
Features of the MM100
- The body is carved basswood with a double cutaway and the neck is rock maple with a rosewood fretboard.
- Microphonics and undesired feedback are reduced by using a H/H pickup combination with paraffin-dipped ceramic pickups.
- For great sustain and solid intonation, this guitar features a string-through-body design with a conventional, adjustable TOM-style bridge.
- Fretwire with high tensile strength for long life and pleasant playability
The pickups aren’t spectacular, but they provide a good sound overall. They lack vibrancy and adaptability – even with the various postures – but they are ideal for a beginner. The MM100 is clear when played cleanly, but it can also produce some rather deep distorted tones for rock and metal, depending on the quality of the amplifier you put it into.
