Looking for short scale, 1 and 7/8 or less nut width, c shape neck, 12 fret. Does anyone make all of this in one guitar?

Look at Taylor - I have a 712 Nylon 12 fret that I love and is one of my 2 gigging guitars.

How short do you want to go?
The newest Córdoba “Mini II” line has a 20” scale in several configurations.

I have the cutaway/pickup model and I like it a lot.

Córdoba makes the Dolce parlor nylons. They might not be considered a hybrid per se, but they are short scale at around 24.8” scale length and a 1.96” nut width. They have a baseline C5 Dolce model, an all solid cedar on mahogany C9 Parlor, or the cedar on rosewood C10 parlor.

I don’t know if you have ever played an Alhambra classical guitar , but they are really good sounding guitars. They have a Señorita model that is short scale and a slightly narrowed nut width. Their necks are flatter than C shape, but I find them more comfortable and easier to play than the Cordoba C shape https://xguitars.com/collections/alh...sical-guitar-1

I did a small inventory of scale lengths vs body sizes. The Cordoba parlor has a short scale for the size of the body, IMO. Torres, for example, didn't build any guitars with that body size (the Dolce is a dead ringer for Torres' larger bodies, except a tiny bit deeper) and a 630 scale, probably owing to a reduced ability to drive that size top well with that scale length. On the Dolce, Cordoba makes up for the short scale with HT strings, so if the desire for a short scale is lower tension for easy fretting, this guitar might not be the thing. No free lunch! : (
