A cutaway on a guitar makes it possible to play those high notes. So, for lead guitar or a soaring solo look no further. The most famous one being the Gibson Les Paul and the Fender Telecaster. Another popular singlecut is build by PRS. The Custom 24 model is a modern take by Paul Reed Smith, with excellent built quality, design and appointments. Singlecut guitars perform great in all styles of music, and are available in all price ranges.
