I had a Yamaha NTX700, that, plugged in had a great sound. Its thin body limited the pure acoustic volume. It was well built, lovely to look at, and had very solid electronics. It came with a soundhole cover to manage feedback when needed. I am a big fan of Cordobas acoustic models, across the entire price spectrum. I had a C5 that I loved but gave to my daughter. And my current, sole nylon string is a spruce topped Esteso and is pretty amazing. I recently played a GK Studio model in my local shop, and it played very nicely and sounded good acoustically. I did not plug it in to an amp so I cannot comment on that.
I am pondering a second nylon and am tempted by the Yamaha SG models, not because I do any live gigging but so I can play silently with headphones in the wee morning hours before the house wakens. But then, I really prefer just pure acoustic nylon guitars.

The Fusion 12 (cedar top) has mahogany laminate back and sides, and an ordinary pickup installation.

Neither guitar comes with a gig bag, although they did in the past.

There is also a difference in the fretboard wood.
My Cordoba GK Studio Negra flamenco had the blended system as well. Truth be told, I wasn't a fan of the internal mic and left it turned down. The under saddle pickup sounded pretty good though.
