Best classical (nylon string) guitar for an electric player? I've been taking guitar lessons for a couple of years and lately dabbling in classical music. I'm considering buying a classical guitar.

What is a good classical guitar for someone who usually plays electric? I will continue to primarily play electric, so I'd like one that feels similar to what I'm used to.
I normally play a PRS mira and a Stratocaster.
Some typical non-classical features would be nice: strap buttons, fret markers, narrow nut width, electric-ish scale length, shallow body, cutaway.
I'm currently budgeting $300 to $400, but I'll entertain any suggestion. I've looked at Yamaha and Ibanez's entries in my range and both seem like they might work, but it's hard to try any of them locally. Any advice appreciated.
