What are you favorite Guitar Body Shapes? And why? For aesthetic reasons, tonal purposes, or whatever.

000 or parlor. I'm planning on buying a Martin 000-15S to play lullabies for my future children and sing them to sleep. It's just the perfect size, in my opinion.

I was never a dreadnaught guy until I bought my current main acoustic (Taylor 310ce L7). That guitar can get me intricate fingerstyle, loud strumming, great flatpicking and everything I throw at it.

I love the explorer shape, I have yet to own one though .

Edit: oh! you mean acoustics (sorry didn't notice what forum it was in)

I like just the plain dreadnought, no cutaways or anything. It's classic

I'm torn between Dreadnaughts and Jumbo's myself. I like a big and loud projecting guitar, but I like the way both look. The Jumbo is unique because it's really curvy like something else us men like, on the other hand I like the plain and classy look of a dreadnought.

I used to love the shape of 000/OM's, but now that i've played quite a few... their sound doesnt appeal to me. Aesthetically, 000/OM's are the best looking to me.

I used to hate the shape of dreadnoughts, but now im finding that i really like them. Dreadnoughts with no cutaway are my favourite right now. Sound-wise, they have all the bass I want and need.

I'm a pretty big fan of Grand Auditorium shapes.

Too bad I don't see them much aside from Taylor / Crafter / Fender.

Anyone know any brands that produce GA's?

You say that like jumbos aren't classy looking
Jumbo cutaway for me, something about the jumbo sound just works for me and the cutaway whenever I need to go for the high frets... plus it looks and feels awesome. Used to be a dreadnought guy, but after I tried a few jumbos... it seems like every time I play acoustics at a store I always go back to the jumbos now. The projection on dreadnoughts is a mixed bag for me, I always feel like it's unbalanced and there's too much bass. It's not as bad if somebody else plays one and I listen, but sitting there with the guitar the sound just doesn't work for me. You know how it can be, the tonal difference with where you are relative to the guitar. Maybe if I didn't have to hear it when I played Nah, I'll stick with jumbos. Great sounds at any distance.

Haha not that Jumbo's are bad looking, they are gorgeous. It's just that whenever I conjure an image of a guitar, a plain one, I always think of a Dreadnought.

I just personally like dreadnoughts because of the feel and the access to the higher parts of the acoustic guitar

I'm surprised there aren't more cut away fans, its a must for me.

i used to love two things about an acoustic guitar when i first started.

1. sunburst colour
2. Cutaways

i though cutaways were the best looking things ever... but now that im really into guitars, i dont like the look of cutaways at all. it makes the guitar so asymmetrical. the access is good, but im a strummer so i can live without it. For me... theres really not much of a point in a cutaway. it costs more money anyway.

For dreadnoughts and jumbos, I think cutaways are far more aesthetically pleasing, in addition to the obvious access benefits. They look goofy on other shapes, though.

I think my guitar is "Classic Shaped". It is also 3/4 size, so it's pretty small, and easy to handle, but the tone isn't too great.

I'm a total noobie, don't have a guitar yet or even know how to play..LOL. But I'm looking to get a dreadnought. Although the grand auditorium does look good as the day goes by. Both must have cutaways.
