If an acoustic-electric classical guitar with a cutaway is on your wish-list, this Takamine may be the answer as it's not in "crossover" style. The neck is a full classical width (2 inches at the nut) and the fingerboard is flat, not radiused as on most crossover models. As you expect from Takamine, the onboard electronics are excellent with a built-in tuner and easy access to the 9-volt battery. The finish shows only light wear, mostly little finger scuffs to the top where a pickguard would be on a steel string, but these really are just scuffs, not scratches, as they don't distort the surface. Comes in a nice TKL hardshell case.
