I bought a classical to learn as well, a Lucero LC-100. GC carries them. Google it and you'll see the very low price. I spent another $5 the other day and put a bone saddle in it. Go to my website below and listen to "Winter's Death" to get a good idea of what it sounds like. It does not sound like a toy nor does it have that "boxy" sound that inexpensive guitars sometimes have. There's no reason to spend at the top of your budget as you can use the leftover cash to buy some instructional books and dvds.

BTW this guitar is not cedar, I don't even think the top is solid spruce, nor did I care when I bought it. Technique on a classical is more important in many ways than the guitar itself.
