    Hello everyone. I have my uncle dreadnought size guitar.
    My only and main guitar is les paul type electric guitar with 24.75 inch(628 mm) scale lenght. Problem is that dreadnought size acoustic guitar bodys are too big for me. Too bulky for playing. My height is 164cm and I wear women's gloves beacuse men's gloves are too big for me what I can buy from stores.

    I live in Estonia I can mostly buy factory standards. Also some parlor and 3/4 are in stores.
    I would like to play in 24.7 scale length with low action. Most cheap acoustic guitars are plywood guitars. Need to figure out what acoustic guitar body types to look and what price range starts acoustic steel string guitars what are not entirely made out of cheap plywood.

    Whether or what type of steel string acoustic guitar to buy? I play like punk rocker. I was thinking o, parlor or oo bodys. I use strap to hold guitar in place when I'm playing. Price range should be maximum 300€

    I have no idea what Euro pricing is for PRS SE Angelus, but they are fairly small guitars

    Look for an SE Lifeson - smaller body style than a dread, thinner body as well. Although it may be a tad thin sounding compared to a deeper-bodied acoustic.
