Years ago I studied with a classical instructor but refused to buy a nylon string guitar (for various reasons). Fast forward a few decades and I still love steel string but also love classical; it’s an entirely different beast even though some skills transfer. If you’re serious at all about a classical repertoire you’ll be far better off with a ‘real’ classical guitar (not a crossover). With respect to the wrist muzzle … it’s based on the premise that there’s a single ‘best’ position for all players regardless of anatomical or physiological differences. I’d argue that’s a flawed assumption. Let your instructor and your sound be your guide there.
My two cents …
Larrivée LS-03 Custom (Red Spruce/Rosewood)
Larrivée OM-03 Custom (Cedar/Quilted Mahogany)
Larrivée P-03 Custom (Cedar/Zebrawood)
Cordoba C-10
Martin 000-15
... and a few others ...
