I'm pretty sure you can just but a pickup that fits in the soundhole. look on zzounds.com or musiciansfriend.com.

umm yeah lol you'd need more than just a pickup


EDIT:

you'd need something like this:

not saying that one in particular, just an example. and i guess you'd need to change the body to be able to fit it. you know, all that routing/cutting out or w.e

Off the top of my head, there's three things that will work. One, a peizo system, which detects the vibrations from the saddle. Two, a soundboard transducer, which detects the vibrations from the top of the body on the inside. Three, a microphone, I'm not sure which type would be best.

Do not get a magnetic pick-up, unless of course you only want to hear the bass strings.

Even the bass strings aren't magnetic.

It's piezo if it's a true Nylon stringed classical.

T_P_Q, some classical strings have steel-core bass strings but they're rare and pretty expensive. My theory teacher has a set on his classical... they're about $65 a set, he says.
