It is better to have an acoustic with a cutaway neck so that you can
access the higher frets.
I have an old Guild which has limited access -- especially for barre
chords-- on the higher frets. I wish my teacher had mentioned the
limitation when he sold me the guitar.
Everyone is different. I have both a cutaway, and normal dreadnaught.
The first thing I found about the cutaway is that it makes lead playing
much easier higher up the neck. The cutaway does nothing else for
me personally at all. I find no chords that play better or easier because
of the cutaway.
Some argue the cutaway design affects the tone (I can't hear it).
I am sure some will!
Other that that, there's no reason not to get a cutaway.
As I said above, if you never play lead, no need for a cutaway.
Everyone likes to play on higher frets once in a while.
I don't really like to on my acoustic. But everyone is different.
