Does a cutaway body style affect the sound of a guitar?
As you maybe already know, the cutaway is for reaching the higher frets if you play that style
of music. There's a difference between otherwise equivalent guitars if one has a cutaway and
one doesn't. The cutaway takes away from the sound chamber, so there has to be a difference in
volume, tone, etc.
The important thing to remember is, if you're buying a guitar and it has a cutaway, you'll
probably be paying extra for it because there's more labor involved making the cutaway. If
you don't really need the cutaway, your extra money might be better spent getting a regular
shaped guitar of better quality.
