I would not be inclined to agree with souldier about his/her preference for $500 guitars over luthier-built/higher end instruments, simply because my experience is the opposite of his/hers. However, I have no interest in debating that point.
My point was not to dissuade anybody from buying or commissioning an expensive guitar, rather, it was to suggest that a person should either know enough about guitars and their own preferences in order to make an informed choice that they will be happy with, or, perhaps they could be a bit open-minded about the guitar they get, rather than expecting something very specific. By the latter I mean, sometimes it is a great joy to discover the possibilities of a guitar as one gets to know it, and it may not be precisely as one imagined, and yet it can be a tremendous guitar nonetheless that one is very happy to own and play.
Mollbarre says that he/she does not want to spend $5000 on "someone else's vision", and I really don't know what that means or what the point is -- does it refer to sound, aesthetics, shape and size, something else? Perhaps if they were a bit more specific about what it is that they are thinking and what sort of customizations they have in mind, then perhaps any responses could specifically address his/her questions and concerns, rather than being general comments about the pros and cons of various guitars and the market for buying/selling them.
Oh, I just saw the above post -- I did not know of the OP's lack of experience with actual classical guitars. In that case, my first suggestion (and that of dta721) is likely the most relevant -- it might be a good idea to learn a bit more about CGs first... But, enjoy the journey, above all, because it is a wonderful instrument, and learning and playing CG (on any classical guitar) is a very rewarding experience, and that ought to be the priority for someone just getting into the instrument and its music.
