Definition for: Cutaway

The section (or sections) of the body at the neck side which are cut away to allow access to the neck. Guitars can be single or double cutaway. The lower portion of the body is virtually always cut away, so the higher frets can be accessed. Most electric guitars allow good access, but on acoustics the body will often come up to the 14th fret.
