BTW, 2 1/8" = 54 mm.
2 1/16" = 52 mm.

Also give Kirk Sand a call, great guy to talk with, as are most luthiers, I believe.
His guitars are expensive, see his client list....

It really is amazing what 1/16 of an inch can do. Thanks for the clarification; I was guesstimating.

That's not solid/chambered body, is it?

The Godin Multiac 7-string is an amazing guitar, I use mine for 95% of my gigs.

I looked it up. It's an acoustic cutaway with onboard electronics.

Not really what I'm after. But thank you, szedio, for the thought.

How do you hold it when you practice at home? Do you stand and use the strap, or have you figured out a way to sit in standard classical position while keeping the guitar in a playable position?

I got rid of an Epiphone because I just couldn't get the bloody thing lay in a playable position while sitting.

I attached a foam cushion to the back of the guitar with velcro, that gave it enough width to sit and play with the footstool, and also helped in the standing-with-a-strap position. The Godin has a deeper body than the Epiphany, but is still too thin unless you get creative!
