I've started too many new guitar threads recently, but would like some opinions on a new acoustic.

Not bothered about the price - anything considered, looking to spend a good whack of cash, so no cheap options :P

Been looking at Martin's or Matons, but no shops nearby stock them.

Has to be an electro-acoustic, and don't care how it looks or the shape as long as the tone is good.

Preferably a cutaway, thin body, but being thinner will leave a ****e tone i guess.

Its gonna be run through an acoustic rack setup too, not that that makes a big difference.

Thanks

Any particular models? Haven't really looked at the Gibsons to be honest, as I reckoned something like a Martin/Maton/Taylor/Avalon would be superior.

Sorry, I should have mention that I really don't want something like the backed Ovations - I have tried some out and absolutely hated them.

It sounds like the Taylor T5 might be a pretty good option for you. I've heard a lot of good things about it, and if you plan on amplifying it anyways, the thin body doesn't matter as much.

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.

The Taylor T5 is very nice, but its not really what i'm looking for to be honest - its along the same lines as the ovation, with the pickup and no soundhole.

Maybe i'm being too choosy, but i'd like it to have a soundhole and a regular style spruce top etc.

The closest i've seen to what i would like is what Zakk is using in this video -

They only have 5 locations and they're all in California. They're primarily a mail order retailer. There's a 14 day return policy for most items(depending on custom options selected). You might have to actually buy one and try it out, then decide if you want to keep it.
