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.
