The Yamaha APX line seems to have virtually invented this small body concept, and taken over the market. There were Profiles and Ovations before them, now Jasmines, all from the same genious of a marketing company, Kaman Musical Instruments, who does Takamine also. But Yamaha jumped on the bandwagon about a decade ago and took it to the next level, maybe the top? Their price and features of their thinline models are very, very attractive or appealing. 5 different guitars that I owned multiple copies of, and all were good. We kept the first 1970 – 71 Yamaha.
