All other things being equal, such as tone woods, nut width, bracing etc, what matters is the difference in sound. This is why my Martin D35, OM21 and Larrivee O2 are all non cutaway. Cutting to the chase, I believe most cutaways are bought for their "looks" and not for upper fret access. People are paying more money for less sound, why?

Should have included a sound comparison. Physical features are nice to know about, however, in the final analysis, it is all about the sound.
