This guitar’s body falls into the “Grand Orchestra” category, which is rounder and slightly smaller than a dreadnought. The difference isn’t dramatic, but a Grand Orchestra is definitely more manageable for children or smaller framed adults.
The body also has a cutaway, which is when a chunk of the body is removed to make it easier to play on the upper frets. This really doesn’t matter on a beginner instrument, but many guitarists will appreciate its inclusion when they advance.
