    The biggest difference for me is comfort. The slope shoulder feels more compact to me. Plus its easy on the eyes :-)

    Surprising as it may be, that extra 1/32 makes a difference. At least to me. It's my Goldilocks rule:

    1 11/16 - A little too tight
    1 3/4 - A little too wide
    1 23/32 - Just right

    I know many...

    In my case, I find my slope Gibson SC less bulky and more comfortable to hold than a standard square shoulder dread... guess it depends on your body type.

    Chaz, I think the parlor size 12 fret slotted "Orpheum" look alike is the P240. The DS240 is the sloped shoulder "J45"... which could also take its cues from the sloped Orpheum I guess.

    So these...
