Hey guys.

Recently, I've been transcribing some songs into fingerstyle, and I realised all I have to play on (that isn't a solid body or electric) is an extremely cheap high action thing that sounds like a toy guitar.

Please recommend some classical guitars (the ones with nylon). My budget goes up to AUD 1200 (around the same in USD).

I'm not a classical guitar connoisseur, and I don't know where to start looking.

Thank you.

EDIT: I'm left handed.

I have a Takamine C132S that I think is wonderful. It also gets very good reviews from other players. New, they're just under $1k, and I picked up mine used (but loved) for a little over half of that.

Sorry, I realize Amazon isn't the go-to resource for classical guitar purchasing, but the link is handy:
