The general consensus is that cutaways have no discernable effect on the volume / tone of a guitar.

Re; issue there either.

Get the one you like the looks of.

One more issue. Seems like the majority of folks who get a cutaway on a guitar rarely need it. If you don't find yourself playing those 18th and 20th fret notes and want to save some $$, consider not getting one.
