strat/teleacoustics are usefull tools that are a very practical solution for clearly recognised individual performance requirements..
and no they dont sound 'bloody awful'

they sound ok..

and can be made to sound pretty good by any reasonably accomplshed
player and/or sound technician..
in fact the potential of these very keenly priced
and intelligently designed guitars
is only limited by the prejudices and lack of immagination
of a very conservative and insecure guitar consumer market..

next..

You could try an acoustic-electric type, like a Godin; the necks are thin like electrics. They are meant to be plugged in but you can still play them acoustically. The sound is pretty thin though...

Try a Zager from http://zagerguitar.com they have their own line now and for a solid top Dread under $500.00 the neck is smooth and shallow and the sound is very good. Action is low and the customer service is excellent. 100% money back if not happy with it and they mean it..shipping and all.. They also have a cedar top with rosewood sides and back (laminate mind you) for under $800.00. I bought one just to see how they sound... they sound and play nice and easy...

I had the same problem and I happened to stumble across an old 1965 Gibson J-50 and I LOVE it! I cannot put it down and I'm having a hard time opening my mind to other guitars now. So, I would check out some Gibsons.

Check out the Alvarez Artist Series - many sizes and shapes to choose from but the necks are all pretty shallow and of the 15 or so guitars my daughter and I have, the Alvarez we have is the only one that we didn't need to send to our luthier to have set up. Three cheers for proper post-factory set up here in the States for these Asian made guitars.

I have had a Washburn accoustic (Woodstock) for 20 years and I have looked for other guitars with a slim neck but never found any as easy to play as the Washburn. Good Luck!

NOTHING is as shallow front-to-back as a Hagstrom - I know the J-45s but Guy Davis plays an H-22.

For narrow, try the Fenders - they sound nothing like a guitar, but the neck is electric-narrow.

Check out thin necks on Art & Lutherie Guitars. These are really quite extraordinary for the price.   Lefty

I have two acoustics with necks that are both thin and narrow.
My favourite is a 1962 Fender Newporter. It's a small bodied mahogany acoustic with a Stratocaster Neck bolted on. The sound is quite quiet and sweet, ant it records beautifully.
My good guitar is a 1957 Epiphone- from before they were cheap Gibson clones. That is a full-on jumbo and is the loudest acoustic I've ever found.

My advice- never buy a new guitar, they don't know any songs!
Cheers
Dave

is this guy still looking from 2002?

if he is, you could try a yamaha cpx15cm. very thin neck. LR Baggs electric, but perhaps not quite as meaty in the low register.

I wouldn't recommend Ovations for thin necks. I'm looking on this site now to see if there are thinner ones. I hate my ovation personally

If it comes to the crunch and the little fingers and the arthritis strike- learn TO PLAY THE STEEL GUITAR.
Lap steel, console steel, resonator or even pedal steel- the complete solution.

FWIW, I know this is late, given that the last post was in August 2011, and it's now November 2011, but one of my guitars is a Guild GAD 30R (or R30), an OM style guitar available anywhere that the Imported Guild line (GAD)is available, and although the OM nut width is 1 3/4 inch, the actual thickness of the neck is incredibly narrow! This guitar has the thinnest neck I've ever encountered on an acoustic guitar, and it is uniformly narrow in thickness from the nut all the way to the body. In fact, the one great feature of this guitar is its flat, thin neck. As a finger picker, I find this guitar to be the easiet to play. However, it doesn't have nearly the tone quality of my favorite guitar, a Martin 000-18 Norman Blake, a 12 fret to the body OM with a 1 13/16 inch nut and a relatively thin V-shaped neck. This V-neck is considerably narrower than other Martin V-necks, and has a great feel, but the 1 13/16 nut width is 1/16 inch wider than the Guild, and therefore takes some getting used to...   The martin SOUNDS so heavenly, though... Unbelievably wonderful tone! The Guild sounds tinny and boxy compared to the Martin, but it IS easier to play because of its thin, flat neck.
The Guild is worth the money just to get a guitar with that neck.
The Martin is worth it's price because you'll never find another guitar that sounds so beautiful.

Reading the Gibson J200 (Emmy Lou Harris version) that is a 180 and is a slightly smaller version of the 200, a J180 or J185. The SJ200 however itself has a very shallow neck. You would maybe not associate such a big guitar with such a slim neck. It's almost as thin as the narrow necked Strats and Tele's. Shallow necks are not just for 'smaller' players it's something to do with the playability.

I once tried, in a shop, a Rickenbacker dreadnought acoustic. It sounded lovely but the neck was very thin with a very close string pitch at the nut. You couldn't put anything too thick at the bass end. The shop guy said they had put 011 set on as anything thicker might buzz if you were excitable when playing.

Too close a pitch for me, but they are known for thin necks in the electric world, bonding two timbers and good adjustable neck bracing.

Taylors have slim necks. Have you tried a baby taylor? Theyre very nice to play and have low string tension. Low tension string are also available called Heritage and are of help to people with arthritis!
