Anyone have any recommendations for a good nylon string classical guitar for less than $800? My step son really wants one and we might help him get one for Christmas. He said he played a Rodriguez that he liked and it was $900 at Guitar Center. I know nothing about acoustics so I have no idea what's quality and not crazy expensive.

You can get a decent Fender classical for $200

I figured they probably made one but they didn't have any at the local guitar centers.

That is surprising.

Try this:

They have Yamaha as well—quality stuff.

lol. We're not paying that much. He has saved up his money for one and we're just looking to pitch in as his Christmas gift.

Most bang for your buck would be a Yamaha

If you're looking for something affordable then the aforementioned Alvarez Yairi guitars are made in Japan but they're built very well for the money, also Mexican built guitars are solid soulfull instruments w/o breaking the bank.

The first thing that most Classical and Flamenco players learn is that the best Classical and Flamenco guitars come from Spain,
and this might be true but not until you spend big bucks. The difference between Spanish guitars and others is that they tend to hold they're value. If you spent just a little more you could get this Spanish made Jose Ramirez "1NE" towards the bottom of this link for $1,199.00. This is built with quality materials and would definitely hold it's value with the big name...

Sorry for rambling but I would hate to see you spend that kind of money and end up with a laminate piece of crap...

Ramirez sold out years ago. No better than Fender or Yamaha but a little more expensive. Another option though.
