nylon string to electric/acoustic

I primarily use an old nylon string spanish acoustic, and now I am beginning to be fascinated by the idea of having an electric acoustic. I really like the Ovation guitars, the way they look. But all the guitar shops that I've been to in town dont carry them!

do you recommend them? I am really happy with my old nylon but I just dont want to risk her getting beat up or stolen with all the traveling I will be doing soon, so I was hoping on finding something with a similiar sound.

Ovations have a sound of their own. A Takamine will sound more like what you already have.

The only thing I don't like about the Ovations is that they have a rounded back. You just about need a guitar strap to play these babies. If you put it on your leg without a strap, the Guitar keeps sliding forward. I would recommend a Martin, Ibanez and Taylor Electric Acoustic Guitars.
