i got a nice taylor 314CE at the moment but i would like something to carry with me without fear of getting robbed or that i can treat it a little more casually than my taylor

i was really digging today the tone of the nylon string guitars
so i was thinking of buying a nylon string guitar but i really don't want to spend much

today i played this guitar at samash and i liked it quite a bit

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-EW-Series-EWN28KOENT-Cutaway-Nylon-String-AcousticElectric-Guitar?sku=515804

pros:small body,cutaway,tuner built in,able to plug it in,looks nice(better in real life than picture)

and this is the other one i saw it has a very good sound and projection but i would really love a cutaway
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Yamaha-?sku=512441

is there any other acoustic nylon guitars with cutaway and a thin neck?

and this is other guitar i saw online which they don't have on store is the wood better on this one than the other model?

i found that the finish on the ibanezes is too thick and the sound comes out to be very very muffled.

The Yamaha is better than those other two guitars.


i still dont quite like the thick neck >_< and would love a cutaway

is there other guitars that meet those requiremets?

classical guitars generally have thick, wide necks, as they have no truss rod so the wood is built to withstand the tension of nylon strings as is.

i think spruce is more of a trebly sound while cedar will be on the bassy side of things. of course back and sides will play a big part too, but thats the short answer.
