Hey Jeffrey - I just answered your comment on youtube, but it seems as though I might have misunderstood you there (it's worded a bit differently). I don't know if it's an advantage or not, I guess it's up to the player. However from a technical perspective, I'd be able to play the string "over the sound hole" without blocking the bass frequencies of the instrument. Thus creating a less muffled sound when playing from that area of the guitar. With that said, I don't consider that area a "neutral" spot. I'd go there with the specific "sound" which would be warmer. At the end, it's all a matter of how the player feels on that instrument and what it give them. (sorry for the "non-answer")
