I bought the C-09 that was on sale few days ago from Fingerstylebanjo (Larry) and very excited about it. Yes, i had to sacrifice my L-03 BlackWOod. :(  But I always wanted sharp cutaway and the priced seemed nice.

anyhow, How much tone am i going to loose from the "F" cutaway? I undestand big piece of wood is missing. HOwever, any information with this guitar would very much help. THanks

It's my understanding that most of the soundboard sound comes from the area around the bridge.  ;)

I too am a big fan of the C series Florentines.  I read on a luthier's site, Olsen guitars I think, that because of the bracing around the soundhole on acoustic guitars, the Upper bout is considered acoustically dead, in other words no effect will be had from creating a cutaway, either Florentine or Venetian.  I'm no expert on the matter, but it seems reasonable.

I don't think you'll be able to hear it. As others have said, the upper bout is pretty inert. It's not contributing much to sound production. You will lose a little bit of air cavity space, but I seriously doubt that it's significant. I'd guess that the variation from guitar to guitar of exactly the same specs, because of the specific woods involved, is greater than the effect of a cutaway.

I have played a '79 LC72 (L Presentation series with the venetian cutaway) side by side to my L and the sound was practically identical. If there was any difference in tone I would attribute it more to string age.

I am sure the people that pay $52 a foot for speaker wire could hear the difference...
