Hey guys.
Just got a quick question. I'm looking for a particular type of acoustic. I'm not really familiar with acoustics and I'm looking for one with a cutaway that allows substantial fret access. Relatively cheap too. Like $200-300 range, not cheap quality.

Is there anything like this?

I'm going to be honest with you when I say that cutaways are generally expensive things to do to a guitar. Because of that, these manufacturers take from the wood/hardward to balance the costs and not leave you with an expensive guitar.

Because of that $200-300 and a cutaway severely limits your choices without going 'cheap quality'

I wasn't looking for very high quality, I just don't want something that's going to play like utter crap

tough one. most of the cutaways are electric/acoustic which drive up the price. do you plan on plugging in? i'd recommend the elec/acou route anyway. a small amp with some reverb or chorus can really wake it up and cover many shortcomings a cheaper one has unplugged. in that price range, to find anything halfway ok, you're gonna hafta go used.
you can find an S6 used for that price if your patient. your local craigslist should have a bunch of candidates( usually asking too much on CL though... everyone thinks their crap is gold) if your not too picky, find some candidates on Ebay, check the reviews, buy one from a good seller with a return policy.

something like this.. also a cheap Cort from the same seller. very trusted seller, bought a few from her and she really stands behind her stuff.

The Perfect guitar with substantial fret access, 25.5 scale, cutaway, in the $200-300 dollar range and has a great sound unplugged and live performances is the Epiphone PR5-E. They are on ebay most are about $240. I seen one on a MTV Unplugged concert. Sweet Guitar.

so what you're saying is that, after getting out of the water naked with 5+ guys, you thought that once the girls were around you had better get some clothes on?

Along with A&L and Seagull, every other acoustic subdivision of Godin- Simon & Partrick, LaPatrie, Norman- is worth a look.
