    That title should be pretty self-explanatory.

    These days, I kinda feel like selling basically most of my guitar gear, and rebuild myself a nicer collection from the ground up. I'd really like to have a nice steel acoustic, for when I'm tired of chugging on my low E string.

    I already know about PRS and Breedlove having pretty much straight string pull headstocks, but I'm not really into what they offer. Ideally, I'm thinking of a gool ol' dreadnought, no electronics, no cutaway. With straight string pull.

    And yes, I know the String Butler exists. Just wondering what else is out there (and relatively readily available in Europe... I don't care about custom guitars, boutique builders and stuff like that).

    Any reason in particular you're hung up on string pull?

    It looks cooler and helps with tuning stability, which is always nice.

    Seagull, Ovation and the thin body Godin semi-acoustics are all "kinda" there
