Yeah.

Is there anything like a really low action classical guitar?
Possibly with a cutaway and some kind of pickup system.

Though I may sound like so, I am not looking for a steel string acoustic but an actual, nylon strings classical guitar.
I tried yamaha's NCT and NTX lines and I felt like they were a bit uncomfortable, so do you guys have any idea where to look?

Because nylon strings have extreme excursion as compared to steel strings, the short answer in NO!

Their optimum adjustment is higher than the standards for acoustic or electric guitars.

However, I imagine you could find a classical, that has a "good action", at least relative to classical standards

There are a number of instruments available lately that have nylon strings but are set up more like a steel-string guitar with a narrower neck and such. Often, these are hybrid electric items, with little sound output other than that provided by the pickup.
This yamaha is an example:

There are other designs as well.

As Cranky says, nylon strings need a bit more room to vibrate due to the lower tension, but you can still adjust the action of any nylon-string guitar for optimal playing.
Also, a guitar used for hard Flamenco-style strumming would need a higher action than one just used for more gentle fingerstyle playing.

or you could get lower tension strings. if you use hard tension, get medium; if you play medium tension (or normal tension), get light tension strings

I actually tried that guitar and didn't really like it, dunnow if it was defective but the neck wasn't even close to being straight.

Could you recommend me something in particular or some place to look?
I'm have pretty much no idea what you can find out there in terms of classical guitars

My main guitar is a 1991 Gibson Chet Atkins CE. It's a solidbody electric classical. Real low action and sounds AMAZING. You can still find them on Ebay quite a bit. I wish they could still make them, it's truly a great guitar. Sounds a lot like what you're describing.

For just a few.... Don't know what price range you may be looking for..... Many of these type instruments are described as "thinline", acoustic-electric, and/or described as having more slender necks.
Most classical guitars have a very wide 2 1/4" neck, which many players find difficulty with.

Master Luthier Kazuo Yairi's 1986 CY-116 comes to mind just for starters in the Kazuo Yairi collection
