Realize that a 1 3/4 steel string would feel nothing like a 1 3/4 nylon. The gauges of the nylon strings are much wider and it leaves less room between.

You rarely see any decent nylon string guitars under 1 7/8 or 48mm.

I'd consider one of the Cordoba C9 crossovers - great bang for the buck, but it's a standard 650mm scale.

The C9 parlor has a slightly more narrow 50mm nut, and a much shorter 630 scale length.
