Looking at nylon electro-acoustic guitars. I want a slim neck (around 48mm) and looking in the £300-£500 price range. I play mainly folk gypsy and Spanish styles. Have looked at the Alvarez AC65HCE which gets excellent reviews but most people say the action is quite high. Also looked at the Luna Muse Series Nylon but don't know much about this company and get the impression they go for looks over quality. If anyone knows anything about these guitars or could suggest a suitable alternative I would be very grateful!

The Yamaha NTX series are very good nylon electro-acoustics. They have a 48mm slim neck - very nice to play.

You should manage to get a NTX 700 for £500.

Most people that come through this forum, and its regulars, firmly believe that Luna guitars are not a good idea.

I was really impressed with a Cordoba Fusion series I tried recently, I almost bought it. Cutaway, neck less than 2" wide, slightly radiused board:

FWIW, I think that, in general, cedar tops are a good bet on inexpensive classicals.

if you like the alvarez, just take it in to your local luthier and have the action lowered.

cordoba makes some pretty sweet guitars.
