Does anyone know of any companies, other than Ovation, that make shallow bodied acoustic electrics? Specific model names would be great.
-Thanks

Most guitars with an Auditorium style body are pretty shallow. I've got a Martin 0X-1 that's only 3-4 inches deep.

Most thin body guitars will not sound that great unplugged, I've checked out quite a few at music stores and they all seem to sound thin unplugged. Many don't even get close to the normal volume level of an acoustic. I'm referring to the thinline models though, the ones that are about the same size as an electric.

Standard acoustics, the same is true though, the deeper the body the fuller it will sound in general, but now and then a shallow body will sound nice. To repeat what I just posted in another thread, get out there and play a few, every one will sound different, and you'll run across the occasional shallow body that does sound good, you just have to shop around and play them.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...

Depends how thin you wanna go. REALLY thin or thinner than normal? I like the Ibanez TCY10, cheap and still sounds decent.

Ovation amkes some quality instuments, and they have a whole lot of slim cut models. I have not heard the thin cuts, but the regulars sound amazing.
