As far as classical guitars go, I won't bother suggesting brands because I'm in a different country and I don't know what you have where you live. One thing I can tell you is that if you want it to be loud and full bodied, forget the cutaway. It robs a classical guitar of a lot of balance, resonance and volume. A player with a good classical technique can still get up there when neccessary and the classical repertoire clever handles high notes anyway. A cutaway would only be needed if you were into playing a lot of high solos accross all the strings and didn't want to bother with the classical higher fret technique. If you wanted to plug it into an amp I think a cutaway is a reasonable option because your amp can make up for what the cutaway takes away. I don't know what your budget is but anything under $1,000 US with a cutaway will be noticeably deficient compared to its full bodied counterpart. But it's your call, if it sounds good buy it - forget brands, but what you think sounds good and you can afford.
