Well - again, FWIW, since I wanted to learn a little guitar (I have no high standing aspirations
) and classical is a part of what I wanted to discover - I also wanted to be able to indulge in a guitar with aesthetics that especially appeal to me.
I love the look of the cutaway.
I was rather disappointed to discover that "real" classical guitars don't come with a cutaway - and the ones that are available have all been electrified. Well - didn't want that either.
You can get a non-electrified flamenco guitar - but that's a different animal yet again, and more expensive.
Anyway...my recent purchase of a less expensive guitar (to use as a travel guitar) is a thin body cutaway with electronics...lol...got my cutaway!
