Going only by your list, you seem undecided between a crossover style and standard classical guitar as well as with or without a cutaway.

So, I have to ask what is it that you are looking for out of your guitar?

Do you have a specific sound, genre of playing or even a price range in mind?

How about adding #7 Cordoba C-7??

The listed models are all cutaways, which I prefer. I like to finger pick. Quality and easy to play are important. Budget between $4-$00.

Can only comment on the Yamaha NCX. Be aware that it sounds great plugged in but less so unplugged.

The only one I have experience with is the Alhambra 10P, and I love mine! Easy to play and sounds great!

The yamaha next is a full bodied classical model I think. Far better acoustically than the thin bodied ntx models from yamaha. The Alhambra would be my first choice though...

Based on the other models you listed, I suspect you mean the Alhambra 1 OP. It's unfortunate that they make both a 10P (ten P) and 1 OP (one Oh-P). The latter is a much less expensive instrument and available with a cutaway. OP here stands for "open pore."
