Hey guys, I'm interested in getting an upgrade from my Washburn D10S. I'm not picky, but the only qualifications for my new guitar are the following:

1. A thin neck.
2. No Cutaway.

My price range is anywhere from $600 to $1200, liberally. Thanks!

I find the Taylor neck to be relatively thin and quite comfortable. Maybe have a look at something from the Taylor 3 series...

Or you could look for some used guitars from the Taylor 300 series...

The Breedlove 25 series has a thinner neck

I agree with the two responses above. But I'd like to add that you won't find an acoustic guitar that has as thin a neck as an electric really (save for maybe ovation, and you won't see me recommending plastic guitars today).

If having a super thin neck is the most important thing to you, look at some Wechter guitars. I played one once and it had a super thin neck. It wasn't the best or worst sounding guitar in the world, but it definitely had the thinnest neck of any acoustic I've ever played.

Taylors have relatively thin necks for acoustic guitars. They're also quite comfortable. From my experience, Larrivee's, although they are a little thicker than Taylors, are even more comfortable once you play them for a bit and get used to them.

the neck on my blueridge is about the same as the neck on my schecter.

Hmm I was gonna say the Ovation necks are really thin and comfy- almost like playing electric but those are cutaways. I definitely agree with the Taylor suggestion though those are a bit pricey. My Yamaha neck feels comfortable...I think it just depends you should try some out.
