The Maverick, you're the OP. Are we getting at what you were asking about?

IMO there's no substitute for you trying out the guitar for size, tone, string spacing, etc.

+1 to Tim's point - maybe a parlor guitar would be the thing. And Tanglewood makes a nice guitar. I've had a Simon & Patrick (Godin) Woodland Parlor with spruce top & cherry b/s for the last 12 years that's kept only in open tunings; it's been just a durable, resonant, steady companion for 100s of gigs. Never had it adjusted or maintained in any way, altho I did ask Godin if I could put medium strings on it which they said was fine. Fretboard width is 1.72" at the nut so plenty of room, at least for me, for fingers on the fretting hand. Great for fingerpicking, rhythm & slide.
