I noticed that acoustic guitars have a pick guard, and classical guitars do not, why is that?

I'm looking to buy a guitar mainly inspired by Andy Mckee and Don Ross, I was wondering what will work best with that kind of style of playing.

Classical guitars don't have a pick guard because you play with your fingers rather than a pick. They also have a wider neck to make it easier to get around. If that's your thing and you want steel strings, check out a fingerstyle acoustic.

Good Luck!

Well, they play acoustic guitars. The percussive work they do with the strings is far better suited for steel stringed acoustic. Here, here's two videos. #1 is an acoustic, # 2 is classical. You'll see and hear the difference.
