This Taylor looks interesting. I had an ovation nylon string once which was nice except the round back bothered me.

A friend of mine plays a Yamaha Silent with nylon strings.
He has a Fishman LoudBox Mini to play it through.

In the last few years, I've been playing nylon-stringed guitars almost exclusively. I play mostly finger-style, and the string spacing just suits me a lot better.
At the moment, I have three nylon-stirnged acoustics,,,a Takamine 128EC, a Yamaha C-70, and a Cervantes Millenium PE. I've also picked up a Godin MultiAc Grand Concert Duet.
Every now and then, I'll take one of my Taylor steel-stringed guitars out of the closet, or my trusty old Guild JF-30, but once you get used to the spacing on the nylons, it's hard to go back to steel,,,, for me anyway.

In the past 2 years I've been alternating between nylon and steel, after playing only steel for about 20 years. It's changed the way I play, leading me to play the steel with my fingers more than I used to. The transition was difficult at first, but now I go back and forth pretty smoothly.
And now I just bought a Selmer-style guitar. That's a whole new universe, too!
