So I'm thinking about getting an acoustic guitar for christmas since there is nothing more beautiful to me than the tone you get from acoustic guitars and I was wondering how useful a cutaway would be. I know I use the upper frets a lot on my electric but does that always necessarily carry over into acoustic territory? I've been looking at the blueridge br-60 but unfortunately that isn't cutaway and I don't know which one I would want if not the blueridge. Any comments on cutaways and suggestions for acoustics with cutaways (provided that you recommend them)?
applause? or ovation if you have money.

an Ovation would be really good if you were stuck at sea, failing that a takamine is a great choice. they are japanese made guitars and their sound is quaility
What do you want to play on your acoustic? i would stay away from Applause and Ovation. Unplugged, they don't have a very nice tone.
I dont have a cutaway on mine but I never go that far on the fretboard, only up to 12 or 13 which is easily enough gotten to without a cutaway.
Cutaways don't have much of a negative affect on tone. You honestly won't notice it.

Honestly though, very few people go past the 14 fret on an acoustic guitar.

The blueridge should be a pretty good guitar. Lots of top notch materials.

I would also look into Breedlove. I just recently played one at my local guitar center and loved it. They are a bit expensive, with cutaways starting at around 800 USD. Other than that, Ovation is a good guitar, I am also a fan of certain Ibanez acoustics, Alvarez is decent as well.
