Hey, I'm looking to buy a nylon string guitar. I like the feel of them and I need one as I'm learning classical music and will need a classical guitar for music school. However, I don't know a thing about them, because I've only really played the cheap, crappy variety. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm gonna go check some out before I make a decision, but I'm just looking for someone to point me in the right direction as far as brands and models go. Even some more basic information like what woods and features to look for in a good classical would be nice.
By the way, keep in mind the fact that I'm not trying to spend a fortune. I'm trying to keep it under $700, but I don't mind going used in that range if I can get quality.
Hey, we're a band from Long Island. Soon we'll be split between Boston and LI because of me going to college. Check us out if you like a mix of elements of classic rock, blues, funk, garage rock, psychedelic, jam band music, jazz/fusion, hip-hop, and reggae.

Start with 80-85 or How Could Hell Be Any Worse. Then, if you want more modern-sounding, and increasingly poppier music, go through their albums chronologically. Suffer, No Control, and Against the Grain are good albums for faster, melodic but not quite as poppy songs that are in between the two extremes of Bad Religion's sound. Generator and Recipe For Hate are good, but have slower songs and less of a punk sound. Stranger Than Fiction is okay. For the most part, The Gray Race, No Substance, and The New America are pretty bad. Their most recent albums (The Process of Belief, The Empire Strikes First, and New Maps of Hell) have a newer, poppier style. In my opinion, the new records are BR's best work. Everyone else probably disagrees though.
I don't really consider Into the Unknown a Bad Religion album. It's a wierd, spacey pscychedelic rock album that sounds like nothing BR did before or after it.
In my opinion, they're okay. Nowhere near the best 80's hardcore band. They have some good songs and a bunch of ****ty ones, too.
Also, East Bay Ray is really not that good at guitar. At all. Even the solo on "Pull My Strings," which a lot of people point out as proof of his skill, is pretty ****. I find that D.H. Peligro and Klaus Flouride are much better at their instruments.
Personally, I'd go for this guitar and find a Marshall JCM combo or stack. I got the TSL 212 100w combo for $650. They're not that expensive. And you'll also have an extra $250 or so for spending money.

Besides the occasional band shirt, I don't dress "punk" at all. I generally wear t-shirts or polos, jeans, sneakers, and quite often a Yankees cap. I always match my ****. (I have like 8 pairs of sneakers and about as many hats.) Maybe I'm insecure, maybe I'm shallow, but I actually like to dress nice and look clean. Most people are shocked when they hear some of the music I listen to. I don't look "punx" in the least.
Are you serious? They're known for having awesome live shows.
I would definitely go see the Dropkick Murphys, but I don't like Neil Young. Just my opinion, see whichever one you like more. I also like the fact that Murphys shows are general admission/standing room only, because I really don't like sitting in a seat and watching bands play far away unless I have to. If you see Neil Young, you'll obviously have to sit unless you pay some ridiculous ticket price.
